Just picked up a Polish/Silkie rooster, his name is Roo-ey. He is about 2 years old and very pretty. (sorry no photos yet). He used to be a free range bird, but his girlfriend was caught by a fox and killed in front of him. The owners kept him in an 8x8 outdoor dog kennel with 2 BR hens. Knowing how unhappy he was, they placed an ad on CL and I went to see him. He seems very nice and I am pretty confident that he will be a wonderful addition to our flock and will the love the 100'x45' enclosed run that we have. I am going to quarantine him for a while before putting him in with the girls, but have a few questions: Do I worm him? Wazine? I haven't seen any worms, but I'm not certain how well he was taken care of. Should I also give him some vitamins and electrolytes? Any advice on how to introduce him? I was thinking of putting the crate in the coop so they could see him, but not hurt him. Thanks everyone. I love BYC!
