Introduction

Pecking is a natural behavior of poultry that allows them to check out their surroundings, including their flock mates. “Though poultry pecking is a natural occurrence, the nature of this behavior can change when birds spend more time inside.

Understanding the difference between curious and aggressive hen pecking is key to knowing when there is a problem. Not all pecking is bad. When it is gentle, this behavior is fun to watch. If pecking becomes aggressive, it can be problematic to other birds in the flock”.
