I have a Serama rooster and a Silkie hen. My hen went broody, so I decided to let her hatch out some babies. I was somewhat worried about the rooster being in with new babies (He's kind of mean for a Serama). Turns out that my worrying was in vain. He is very paternal with the chicks. He started to attack anyone and anything that gets close to the chicks. He even lets the chicks cuddle up with him for warmth. It's quite a site to see both parents with the chicks. The chicks actually follow him around more than their mother.
