    Ive got a 4 month old silkie rooster, his friend drowned the other day. If I get him another friend its gunna have to be a month old chicken. Is this safe for the month old?

    You do have to follow a 30 day quarantine period, then slowly introduce them. Another silkie? [​IMG]

    30 days? My chicken is healthy, do I really have to make him lonely for a whole month?
