    Hi there, I've got a few silkie chickens and two roosters, I just found out about the second today. The second, Nugget, is very nice and never pecks at me but fights with my bigger rooster. Should I separate them now, or can I wait longer? They're only about 4 months old and the fighting is only really chasing around.

    Seperate them now. I would think it would keep the peace. You say Nugget doesn't peck at you- does the other one peck at you?
    Personally, I would put Nugget, the nicer one, in with the hens- that would show if hes a good rooster. If he is too rough, or over mates, then put the dominant one back into the flock!

    Also- :welcome
