I am new to having chickens and have been lucky, up until now, I have not had any problems with the other hens or my rooster being aggressive. I have one Polish rooster, Roger, who was a sweet guy, until I let my four 13 week old chicks out to play in the yard with him and the other 16 hens. Everything was going fine until Roger saw, Omlet, my silkie. He grabbed it, drew blood from it, and tried to shake it. I felt like he was trying to possibly kill it. When I bought the four chicks at the feed store, they told me that Silkies were hard to sex, and she thought it was a female. Could my silkie be a roo and that is why Roger was being so mean to it? I have never seen him treat any of the other hens that way. I have attached a picture of Roger and two of Omlet.
