    I have a pair of silkies. Yes they are 1 male 1 female. Yesterday I went out to the run and they were standing face to face and head bobbing. Then they would kind of charge eachother and do it again. What are they doing?

    How old are they? sounds like what my pullets and young roos do before sexual maturity.

    It goes like this. "I'm the boss" "No, I'm the boss" "You want a bet?" "Sure lets get it on" "I'm not scared of you" "Take this" "So what, take this"
