Or is this asking for trouble? Last year, we tried to mix him into the flock but they picked on his horribly, I guess because he looked different. All my hens are red or black and he stuck out like a sore thumb being a white Silkie. Later a pair of Porcelain came into our possession, so we just housed those three together. One of the Porcelain was adopted, the second died today. So, now Silkie is alone. Can I introduce him in? Currently, my rooster for my flock is a Mille Fleur d' Uccle and he is an excellent rooster to them. Great at protecting the flock. So, he's a little shorter than the Silkie is, I'm not sure if he would still try and fight or what. I'm assuming yes regardless of size, just because they are boys. I have 14 hens, the Mille Fleur and the Silkie in question. Is this an OK hen to rooster ratio, and am I setting him up for death trying to add him in with a rooster who has had the girls to himself for a year? My hens are coop/run kept, they do not free range if that matters. I just hate that he's the odd ball out. I don't want the hens to pick on him all the time.
