    Wow, I never get mad when that happens. It happens, and I move on. They're chickens, they peck.

    One of my girls started this around 10 months old. I picked her up and carried her around, which she did not like.
    It stopped with me, but then started again with my four-year DD.
    She responded the same way (DD says she's "teaching Charlotte whose the boss), and we rarely get pecked now.

    My hen did that last fall. I think she was really pecking at my ring but she drew blood. I was SO MAD. She pecked me another time after that, so got some 'tough love' (I did a kill-'em-with-kindness, and carried her struggling self around the yard). She was headed for soup for a little while there, though. Thankfully, she got the message.

    well mine did it to be mean

    somehow, i don't think chickens have a sophisticated enough mental process to intentionally cause you anger. she did not want to be pet and reacted defensively.

    i hope you and your chickens will be okay. happy healing.​
