I have began raising silkies. I am obsessed with them. They are a part of my every day life now. However, in one of my coops, I have 3 white pullets. I Used to have a white roo in with them, but was informed he was 4 years old and he was sick. He was immediatly removed from the pullets. When I attempted to introduce another white roo with the ladies...they began attacking him. I figured this was part of the pecking order. On a second note, when I got the roo he was bright blue due to some mite spray the previous owners used on him. The pullets pecked his "saddle" area and all of his tail feathers off!! What in the world is going on? How do I fix it? And could it be due to the bright blue feathers? If so how do I wash it off? Heeeeellllppp!?!?
