    Hi, My Silkie roo recenty got knocked down the roo pecking order. Sara (was supposed to be a girl) used to be the top of the pecking order and I think recently she..he has been knocked down to the bottom with George (my large BO) and a buff brahma (soon to be going away) taking over the spots. Sara seems to be spending more time alone, still active, but not his usual self. She... I mean he has had the top spot since last summer! Is it possible they get depressed?? If someone took over my spot I think I would be!!
