Gotta get rid of roos!!!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 5 silkies, about 4 months old.... Apparently three are roos and two of them fought yesterday. Separated but I need to re home 2 of them. How do I determine which to get rid of? How much? They are white and very fluffy on the head

Are they hatchery or breeder stock? What are your plans for them?

We got them from a small breeder at about 3-5 weeks old. They are just pets. I suspected more than one roo, these are our first chickens and I didn't realize they would fight this early, my mistake. I was so upset yesterday 😢

If you can separate the roosters together in one coop they will stop fighting, just leave the one you like with the hens

So if two roosters are in same pen they won't fight? I don't even know if I need/want a rooster, we just have them for pets really, I know they're not great egg layers....

If you are not going to breed there is no reason to keep any males. Do you have other bantams? You may want to find another silkie pullet or hen to keep your lone one company.
