    I think she forgot she was a silkie... she is first to approach me in the pen, then she follows me around pecking my feet, my pants, flying up at me like a rooster trying to spur anytime I take a step, she is CRAZY. I pick her up, walk around with her and she's fine, but on the ground she is after me big time... what's up with that? I love her, she is my favorite from the hatch in August, because she's really a runt and much smaller then the others, but I want to give her the boot sometimes!

    Quote:Maybe that's what she wants! Could be she's spoiled, so when you aren't doting on her she acts like a brat till you do.

    I think CovenantCreek is right on with their opinion - she's spoiled!

    No, I think she's a Silkie who failed the Silkie Disguise the Evilness Boot Camp. She'll be called back to the mother ship before too long.

    Sounds spoiled. If you don't want to carry her around all the time you need to teach her different.

    No Coty Jo, she's the only one I'm keeping from that batch since she's my favorite and all [​IMG]

    I didn't start picking her up and carrying her around until she started this behavior, but maybe I just encouraged it. I swear, it's like raising children...

    How shall I break her? Whips? Chains? Manual labor?? [​IMG]

    The Gulag is the only place for "outed" Silkies.

    Is she about to lay? Sorry.. not sure on her age, but my girls ALL got this horrid attitude a few weeks before they started. Not quite as bad as yours [​IMG] but one nasty girl was on her way OUT after she pecked my ring and drew blood. My favorite girl pecked ME because we were holding her and she was annoyed. They were also driving each other crazy!

    These days, now that they lay, they stick to pecking snow off my boots [​IMG]

    She is adorable.. that would be like having a cute stuffed TEDDY BEAR try to eat your face...
