    She has always been a little jerk. When she was a chick, she became my husbands "project". He held her as much as possible to try and tame her. And it did work but when they got older and moved out to the coop she reverted back to her jerkish ways. When I go into the run she will try and attack me. And its not just when I go near her, she comes to me to attack. I don't want to make the other hens scared of me in an attempt to keep her away. And just incase someone is going to suggest it, she is not a he. They are 17-18 weeks so I would know by now. I would let someone turn her into stew except she hasn't laid any eggs yet and she owes me. [​IMG]
