    Hey! I have an O Shamo cock who is a few months old (still very young) and I am about to get a hen for him who is about a year old. Does anyone know if I can mix them yet? Or will the hen attack the little guy? O Shamos are extremely aggressive so if anyone has any experience with them I would be grateful of some advice!

    Thanks :)

    She could kill him. I bought three that were raised together and was still cautioned that he may be a bit young to stay in with the two hens. Maybe someone with more experience could help you but I do know it can be a risk.
