I have 5 silkies and a silkie x serama cross that I want to live together, but they're having aggression problems. I don't know all of their genders yet. Some of these pictures are old, but I don't have more recent ones at the moment. Blue, a hen: Garth, the silkiexserama cross rooster: Terk: Halyn: Kiara: Phoenix (believed to be male) Kiara constantly harasses Terk, and occasionally goes after Blue as well. None of the others seem to have problems. A few minutes ago, I introduced Garth to them for the first time. Kiara immediately went for him, bit his waddle, and tried to rip it off. He's twice Kiara's size...but that wasn't a deterrence. So I removed Kiara and watched his behavior with the others. He stomped at the babies once or twice, but seemed fine otherwise. Blue seemed to be in LOVE with him, and he tolerated it, but eventually bit her topknot and pulled her around by it. I removed him after and put him back in his cage, and put Kiara back in the big cage with the others. My mother says they'll always have squabbles for dominance, but she said they'd stop once they established a pecking order. The 5 fullbloods have been together for weeks, and Kiara wont let up on poor Terk. Was Garth's aggression towards Blue a dominance thing? Where my mother would leave them alone and let them sort things out, I step in before they can hurt each other. I just cant watch them do stuff like that. When they're big enough, the silkies will go in the big outdoor enclosure with my two polish hens and one polish roo. If Garth doesn't get along with them, he'll have his own outdoor enclosure. If Kiara doesn't stop his/her harassment, s/he will have to be rehomed, because we don't have enough room outside to make too many more individual enclosures.
