Anyone remember my ramblings about how sweet Mrs. Cuddlesworth was? Well, she isn't sweet anymore. I was holding her and she bit my nose, even drew blood. I was not amused! I think I may change the sign on the gate to read beware of attack chickens!
Maybe she has PMS. Do they get snippy as they get older. Red (boys named her) isn't as docile as she was three years ago. She is still friendly but doesn't eat out of my hand anymore and seems a little agressive toward the other hens some days. Belle is the queen bee so it is strange to see Red being bossy and mean.
Aw, Mrs. Cuddlesworth was just expressing dissatisfaction with your current choices of treat material for her. How else is a girl to express herself? A good peck on the nose sure got your attention, didn't it?
