My flock consisted of 14 birds. My older birds consist of a silkie rooster and 3 americauna hens, a leghorn or ISA brown rooster and 4 of his own hens, a bantam rooster and 4 hens of his own. My question is by culling the larger rooster how long will it take for the silkie to take on the 4 roosterless. They all share the same run and up till now the larger rooster hasn’t been aggressive.

2 Roos and 8 females in the run or 3 Roos and 12 females?

If it goes down to 1 roo and 8 females, the addition four will have to be won over by remaining roo. Could be a week or month.

If there’s a choice between Roos they will migrate to the most liked/better roo

The silkie is actually top rooster. The larger rooster is one I got at TSC and was supposed to be a pullet but surprise. We were going to see how it worked out until I either found another home for him or he became aggressive. Today he bit my husband and I refuse to have an aggressive bird.
