I had 2 chicks hatch in the incubator years ago. I put them right in with Peanut, my first Silkied roo, when he was very young himself. For a whole month, he raised them just like a hen.
Then he started trying to mate with them so I gave him a girlfriend.
That's him in my avatar too.
Serama-really neat little birds. Peanut is a beautiful rooster.
