I have 13 - 7 month old hens. No roos and I'm brand new to raising chickens. We got these chicks as day olds and they were all handled and very friendly with my 3 kids. I specifically chose docile breeds and all hens so that I didn't have to deal with aggressive behavior. This morning, I was throwing out some scratch grain and petting the chickens as usual. My Golden-Laced Wyandotte bit my hand! (not too hard, but a deliberate attack) I wasn't even petting her at the time! So I gave gave her a shove as if to say I'm at the top of the pecking order. Then, I ignored her and petted the other chickens. She attacked me!, jumped up in my face and left long scratch marks down the side of my face and under my eye!!!! I thought hens were supposed to be gentle! We've never shown any aggressive behavior towards our chickens! Why would she attack me?! She has never shown any aggressive behavior towards people or other chickens before. What should I do? btw -- she is the only one of our chickens who is not laying eggs... could she think she's a Roo?
