We just had our first egg yesterday! We think it is from our RIRed who started "attacking" us when we went to pick up the egg (which was lid out on open ground!). I finally had to distract her with some lettuce so my daughter could get the egg. Has anyone seen this kind of thing? Also, this same chicken (who I regard as one of my pals) follow me around the pen and pecks at my legs. Not hard so it is kind of endearing. But it is sometimes annoying and I don't want it to become stronger. Especially inconsideration of her behavior with the egg. Can I "train" her not to peck me? or What would be an acceptable way of detering or discouraging her? Thanks from another ignorant chicken "noobie" on the way to becoming a chicken enthusiast!
