I have 11 large breed hens and I'm thinking of taking a banty silkie roo off my friend's hands. She already has 2 roos. So 3, for her, is way too many!! If I adopt this little fellow, will he cause any changes to the eggs I'm getting other than being fertilized? The eggs wouldn't get smaller would they? Or if chicks were ever hatched, they wouldn't be retarded or anything would they? Also, would his size vs. their's deter his attentions somewhat? The reason I'm even thinking of adopting a roo is because I think a little protection for my hens would be a good thing where we live. We occasionally get the stray dog that's escaped his home... or a coyote or 2 here and there. We just got a puppy too, and I was thinking that this little guy would deter her from getting to freindly with my chickens. My girls are allowed to free-range when the weather permits. Thanks!!
