A little history...I am new to chickens and have not had the best of luck...I started out with 8 hens and cocci got 4 of them even though I treated as soon as I realized what was going on. The surviors seem to be doing well now and I actually added another hen which brings me to 5 hens- 1 barred rock, 1 jersey giant, 2 turkens(one is laying already) and a dutch bantam- all are around 5 1/2 months old except the one laying and she is alittle older. I was happy and content to let them be and just wait on the eggs...I was not adding anymore since I had so many issues. My father-in-law showed up with 2 chickens(a 3 month old silkie rooster and a month old polish top hat) for my birthday...I did some research and found that silkies don't roost or climb or fly...so I contacted the lady he got them from and got the silkies brother so the one wouldnt be sleeping alone. But now it seems the original one is having issues with one of its legs...I asked the breeder and she said sometime silkies do have leg problems but it woudl be ok...I am giving him vitamins hoping its just a deficiency however its not looking good. All that to ask...if/when the one rooster doesn't get better....would only 1 silkie rooster be ok in with the girls?
