Our Silkie hen was injured last summer and now has one paralyzed leg. She is being kept with some young chicks and is let out daily for some play time with the flock. The hens peck at her and the silkie roo tries to breed her, but I shoo them away. Is that a mistake? I don't want them to kill her, but she needs to be socialized if she is going to live in the coop with them (right now she lives in a huge dog crate). Also, should I let the roo breed her? Or is that a bad idea? She laid her first egg today, so it will be a while before I let them 'do the deed'. I am hoping to get some silkie chicks from her, but if that is a bad idea, I won't do it.
