I spoil my 12 - almost 10week old Golden comets rotten. I spend time with them each day talking to them and petting them. I have noticed them picking at my clothes but that is not a problem. I usally sit down on the 2x4 roost and about 6 of them will get up and sit beside me or on my lap while the other are at my feet usally pecking at my shoes. I was petting one on my lap yesterday when the one beside me gave me a really good bite on my arm. I now have blood blister there. I hollered and swung my arm of course she squaked and jumped down. Was she jealous or is that just normal behaviour for a chicken. I'd sure hate to think I have to wear long sleeves in the summer.
