Inside I have 5 silkie chicks 1 three weeks old, 3 two weeks old, and 1 just a week old. Out in the coop I have a lone sizzle polish looking rooster that is 4 months old. He is the most non aggressive rooster I have ever seen. I had 3 Road Island Red hens(same age) and they picked and pecked at him non stop. I eventually decided to seperate them after 3 weeks of them not letting up. My question is at what age should I start letting the silkie chicks socialize with the rooster? I am afraid if the chicks get to old they will pick on the rooster. Also I do not know what to do with my RIR hen. She will not get along with any other chicken it seems like. Right now I have her seperated.
