Now what do I do? We process our extra Bo roos, but what do you do with silkies? I can't imagine keeping all 3 of them. I learned last winter that keeping too many roos is very hard on the hens. (some were accidental) I don't want to keep more than 2 roosters. Would a silky be considered in that catagory or are they too small that it wouldn't matter? I've never had silkies before and don't know how big they get. Mine are about 5 months old. 1 started to crow 2 wks ago, another last week and I'm waiting for the 3rd to start.
