We have one Silkie rooster and eight hens that roost. I have read that the Silkies do not roost because of their different feet, and I've witnessed this since we've had him. One of the hens used to sleep down on the floor with him, and then he slept by himself down there. Last night was the coldest one we've had so far this season I think and when I locked them up, he was up roosting with the hens. So I have two questions: 1. If he does roost with them during the winter, is this going to damage his feet? and 2. If he sleeps by himself in the cold winter temps, will he be able to survive? I should add that we don't have electric down at the coop. Thanks for any advice about this breed!
