    Hi yall,

    So my son rescued a young stray chicken... It's been about 4 weeks since it has joined our flock. The last 2 days, it jumps on top of my silkie in what appears to breed?! does it have rooster characters?

    It only attacks/jumps on my white silkie. I have other ladies that the new chicken doesn't even bother with.

    Is it truly a rooster? I'm not allowed to have roosters in my neighborhood but hens are ok.

    Thanks![​IMG][/IMG]

    How old is it? I do believe you have a Buff Orpington cockerel.

    It appears to be between 5-8 weeks?
