    We have 2 groups of silkies that never interacted, the roos met when one was free ranging and both ended up bloody...We have a 3rd group that have been together since birth that has 2 males in it, can we expect(or hope) that they would get along a little better if kept together(never apart) with ample amounts of ladies for them?!?!?...They're 1-2mth old and so far get along great...Thoughts? Experiences, which we realize will vary greatly?...

    we always have multiple roos in each run (always more than 2), all depends on the # of hens and size of run.

    For the longest time, I had more roos than hens. I got rid of everyone but the Cochins and that ended up being three roos and two hens. I never had a problem with the boys fighting or the girls getting beat up. I guess that's out of the ordinary. I think it all depends on the birds themselves.
