Hey all! So my lowest-of-the-pecking-order and currently getting bigger than the others, Stormy (blue Cochin), is a sweetie. She was picked on a LOT by the top girl, Chai (my EE girl- lavender with red mottling on her feathers and a brown head). Stormy's a complete sweetie and generally avoids the others, though lately sahe's been getting ballsier and getting in with the others at food time. Thing is, when I bring my left arm upward- or even my fiance doing it- to her when she's roosting, she BITES. Hard. Multiple times. We've tried loudly stating "NO!" or "BAD" at her (and my fiance thwapped her twice lightly on the head, which I'd prior done but got no better luck from), but now she's cowering a little. (Which is understandable, since she pushed her luck with me and tried to do it repetitively. I got 10 chickenbite welts on my arm! b*^T&#). Do you guys have any bitey chickens? How do you remedy this? If she keeps it up I just might swap her out for a new Cochin with less grump. Don't get me wrong, she's an AWESOMELY docile, cuddly little girl but whenever we lift our arm up near her, she considers it an attack and gets bitey. T.T She's such a sweetheart until she does that. To be honest it's heartbreaking having to discipline her via NO!/BAD at her (with the occasional light thwap). I hate that approach though; it took Chai a couple days of fearing us when she was worse, but Chai's never done it again. Any ideas? Thanks guys!
