    We have one bantam roo who is very very very small. We just adopted a silkie roo a little over a week ago. We have 6 hens currently for the two of them to share.

    I introduced them two days ago and my bantam is picking on the silkie. The silkie is very submissive and any time the bantam comes over he just lays down or runs away. We havent had a super serious fight but how long do I leave them like this?

    i have a very simmiler story. i have 2 roosters and we just introduced a new younger one. after a couple of fights and some pecking they are fine together. dont take either of them out unless your going to get rid of one of them. if you take one out and put him later it will start up again
