Hi Al! Ok, so there was a beautiful rooster needing a home from another state - it peaked my interest but has since been rehomed. However a quick glance on craigslist and there are loads of beautiful roos needing homes. A beautiful silkie roo the same age as my first flock of hens (almost 7 months) needs a home and he has caught my attention. Thing is all of my girls are standards - EE's, Wyandotte, Orpington, Brahma, Spitzhauben, Golden Comet, Cuckoo Maran & Austrolorps (a very mixed flock!).
Would there be any benefit to adding this little guy? My guess is he wouldn't be much in the way of protection. Do they crow as loud and as much as a standard roo?
I've got a 10x12x8 coop with an enclosed electric fence perimeter of 300 ft.
Any feedback, thoughts pro and con is appreciated! Thanks!
