    What the heck happened to my sweet,loving, calm 8 month old Dominique? One day she started pecking at our pants...which we thought was for attention, so we would pick her up and she would let us love and pet her for a long time. Then one day she started agressively pecking us all over, and kept it up even when we would poke her back. The next day we would pick her up and she would bit us with and open mouth. We notice that she is hanging out with our Brown Leghorn, who is aloof and picks on the other three. Will he personality go back to what it was a couple of weeks ago? Is she going through hormonal change? She has been laying eggs everyday for a couple of months and isn't broody.
    She was my favorite chick, and I am so depressed about her rejection of me and her out right agression.
    HELP Please

    I can't help you but maybe if you post this question in Chicken Behaviors and Egg laying someone can?
