    I'm sorry I can't offer any advice [​IMG] I just wanted to tell you I had the same issue once. Someone gave me a black Silkie Roo that did not want anything to do with the girls. I had to rehome him after 2 weeks because I had another Roo I didn't know about in my flock. But my friend I gave him to said the same thing. She had him for 4 months and had absolutely no interest in her hens, always hung out by himself. We called him Romeo the gay Roo!

    Quote:Is the japanese bantam roo in the same pen? Some of my silkie roos will keep to themselves if they are low in the pecking order and housed with other roos.
