So a few weeks ago I ordered 18 buff orpington chicks and raising them has been a blast but recently one has turned rather aggressive. It has always been lively as it would jump at me and peck me but now it charges me and bites, I mean latches on and won't let go! Now, it has been marked from the hatchery as a rooster (I asked about that here in another thread) so that might explain some of the aggression as the other two that are marked may peck at me now and again while the rest of the chicks do not but not like this one. That said, it does not seem to act this way with the other chicks, only humans. Now that the background is out of the way I will get with the questions. I know that roo's are supposed to be on the cocky side as they protect the flock but is this a sign of being too aggressive? If this is a sign of being too aggressive is it something that the chick may grow out of or should I band it and write it off for the soup pot? (I say band it because the marks from the hatchery are wearing off more each day as the chicks feather out.) I really don't feel like being attacked every time I go in the coop. My mother has three roo's in her large flock and none of them act like that. Thanks in advance.
