I have two 9 week old silkies still in the brooder (it's still very cold here). We have an inkling that one may be a roo and we can't have roos where we live at the moment (will be moving to a more chicken/roo friendly area in the next year). The predicament I have is that I just can't put the other silkie in with our older girls because I have a feeling she will be picked on but the lady we buy our chicks from doesn't have anymore in the same age range as our chicks. Any suggestions? We thought we might sell the silkies as a pair if it ends up being a rooster but also thought if we could find another chick at the same age we might introduce her to the babies and have them both go in the big girl coop together. My problem is them getting picked on/not liking each other. Lots of questions, I know but I'm a worried chicken mom lol!
