    [​IMG]One rooster can handle 10 hens, so two roosters would need 20. Your poor girls are greatly outnumbered and will be overbred unless they figure out how to hide or fight off the roosters advances.

    G’Day from down under SJG SilkieFarm [​IMG] Welcome!

    BYC has an active Silkie Thread you might be interested in joining: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
