Hey there! I need some advice. I have three hens and one of them has done the whole "taking on the rooster" role. She has become extremely aggressive and attacks me whenever I get near her. She launched herself at my head one time and nearly took my eye out - I don't go near the chickens now without some sort of protective eyewear. She is just shy of a year old and at first I thought she was aggressive because she was molting and cranky. But this has carried past that phase. She is truly vicious. I hate to be mean to her but I've had to become physically aggressive back at her just out of shear self-defense. I'm concerned that I might have to get rid of her but I wonder, with her gone will one of the other chickens take on that sort of personality or by a year old are their "characters" pretty much set? I've read that one should hold an saucy hen until they calm down but honestly I can't get close enough to do even that. Any advice would be appreciated!!! Thanks!
