I'm getting a lone silkie rooster from a BYC member, he's been shipped and due to arrive today. I have a quarantine A-frame coop in a yard not adjacent to my main chicken yard. He will stay in the coop while I'm gone (not very often) and have the run of the yard during the day. The coop is not secure for nighttime use, so he'll be roosting in my bathroom in a big bird cage. I have placed an order for 4 silkie chicks due to arrive in three weeks. I'll then have the brooder in the laundry room, and let the silkie rooster roost in the laundry room so they can get used to each other but not get TO each other. When the silkie chicks are big enough to move outside, I will keep them separate but visible, until I am sure everyone will be sweet or able to defend themselves/get away. I've had a silkie rooster before and he was nothing but sweet and never hurt any of the babies, but I know they're all individuals, so.... Am I missing anything? Any advice much appreciated!
