Just wondering if someone can tell me if my Frizzle Cochin is definitely a hen I was told she is & she is about 16 weeks old now & is it normal for her to attack my male silkie I think its a male he is younger?

Your Frizzle Cochin looks to be a pullet. Silkie does look to be a cockerel. From what you've said, the Silkie was first & you're now adding the Cochin? You need to do the introduction slowly....If possible put one in a wire cage with food & water and putting the cage in their enclosure or next to each other. That way they'll get used to each other's presence....Sounds like the Cochin's setting up her territory. That's my thoughts but others with more experience may have a "solution".

Agree with Chicken Nanny. Also hens resent a young cockerel. Once he matures and has some experience, they will be more welcoming

Your Frizzle is so cute, I could hardly see her head, looks like she is surrounded by porcupine quills. :lau

No we had the Frizzle first & we are adding the silkie they have been in a cage side by side & they have been fine but when they are out she just wants to attach him

Here is a better photo of her head I was hoping my silkie was a hen as I can't have a rooster
