Bantam roos

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by matthewschickens, May 13, 2011.

  1. Hello.

    If I had, for example, three pairs of Silkies. Could I safely keep the three roos and the three hens together without fighting?

    Thank you!

    Once they got the "who is dominate" thing worked out, it should be ok, but I wold be more concerned with only have 3 hens for all of them. I foresee your hens stressed from all the attention and feathers worn off the backs. I currently have 4 bantam roos with 28 bantam hens and have never had the boys bloody each other fighting.
