So, today my leghorn started acting differently. Before, she would never really peck us on purpose, unless she was curious about something, but this morning she pecked on purpose. I was scooting her towards the coop to encourage her to wander that way so I could put her inside (I live in the city) and that's when she started pecking me. Could that be it? Also, before, whenever we wanted her to jump onto our arms we tap our arms and call her name, encouraging her to come and jump on us but since it got colder and the ground is all muddy we did it less and less. Could that be another reason? When she is actually on my shoulder she will grab my hair in her beak and give it a tug. I'm really worried because we got along really well until today and I don't want to have her always act like this. She's always been friendly. I'm sorry if this is a jumble and doesn't make sense.
