    my roos (i have 5) are fighting with one of my roos (silkies) so bad that his white feathers are pink with blood....think there just not agreeing with each other or do you think that they will kill him?

    Chickens go into a sort of frenzy when they see blood....the color red just excites them. If you can, separate your poor silkie roo so that he can recover.
