    Well, I got my 4 new chooks from a farm, and 2 of them would run around and free range, and 2 were inside, because they were smaller. The ones inside are my 2 black polish. The ones outside were a BO and a NH. They are all girls. But I can pick up all the chickens, (the chooks from the farm are a little harder to catch) but I still can catch all 7 of my girls. But when I pick up the polish and hold them, they think its funny to bite my fingers. It doesn't hurt now (they are about 2 1/2 or 3 months old) but I know that their beaks will get sharper and hurt more as they get older. I don't want them biting me or my little brother, or anyone else that wants to hold them or pet them. My question is...

    Are polish generally more aggresive than others?
    And if so, what do you suggest i do to try to make them not bite as much?
