Ok, so I have the one little Silkie chick. After reading many posts here on the boards I am considering the idea of getting a second chick to make sure that Charli always has the companionship that as a chicken he/she needs. My delima.... if Charli turns out to be a roo, and if I get another chick and it turns out to be a roo also...... will I have to part with one? Can 2 roos co-inhabit and get along? I know silkies are super docile and the males can be rather maternal.....can 2 silkie roos get along where others could not?????? Not to mention delima 2 where I end up with a roo and a hen!
I know my husband would not appreciate me breeding little house chickens every year

I think two roos will get along if raised together and there are no girls around to try to impress.

I had a bachelor pad for my roos. I had over 7 living toghether with minimal to no fights. They should be fine. I had 2 people take 2 roos toghether.

I've read that roo's get along fine if there are no hens around (like Josie said). The two I had a while ago were very well behaved around each other most of the time, even with some hens.

I can't believe no one mentioned thies yet.....the breeding part is simple. Just keep the eggs gathered. At least chickens are one animal you don't have to let multiply unless you want to!!!

Oh, it's not that how to keep them from hatching a bunch of babies..... it's how to keep everyone from WANTING to hatch a bunch of adorable fluffy tiny sweet little chicks!
It would be so hard to say no to them ...... :|
