    I have my Nilly and my Mr. Bo-Bo (They are a year old)
    Nilly has always had an attitude but recently she was pushed to the bottom of the food chain when her stud Mr. Bo-Bo was finally put into his place by my mothers Buff Rooster.
    However, i mistakenly took pity on the pair as I love my flighty freaks, and I put them in my bantam coop with my silkes.
    Now Mr. Bo-Bo has grown a pair again and wont stop challenging the Buff rooster threw the fence, Nilly is back on top so she is constantly pecking at and picking on my silkies.
    What can I do to keep them, myself, and Mr. Rupert, the buff rooster, Happy?
    Should I be looking at finding them a new home, or will this get better?

    OH my gosh. Mr Bo-Bo sounds like my Mr. Fluffers(faverolle) challenging my chicken killer Rotten Ruby thru the fence!

    I have no idea... I think thou, if you give it a few weeks, they will get who's who in the silkie pen, or just build them their own pen...

    I spent all of my extra money doing that for the silkies T_T
    Ill wait a week or so and hope that things calm down. I just really hope they do, Mr. Bo-Bo is a gorgeous rooster and I love my freak Nilly...
