    I have 2 roosters and 1 silkie hen one rooster is mean to her and me. I am getting rid of him. The other rooster isn't as mean he pecks heralot though is this normal??? Can I separate the 2 rooster from her. And buy a baby hen and have them live together or is that a bad idea????

    What is his age? Your rooster to hen ratio is too low. If he's young and coming into sexual maturity your hen could end up being extremely over bred.

    Yeah, he's definitely coming into maturity. Are these your only two or do you have more hens?
