    I have a silkie rooster that sired a male. The little family travel the yard all day together...so cute! But when the baby matures will the two males fight? Or will they tolerate each other since they seem to be so bonded at the moment? Thanks.

    They will likely be fine, as the father will put the son into his place. Just like with the hens, there is a pecking order with the roosters.
