    Two disadvantages ...
    - Some breeds of hens do not perch! silkies
    - Roosters put the pressure on the chicken hens so that they start laying again ...the young peacocks need their mother longer!

    Don’t have any silkies, it'll be a Brahma/Rhode Island red or a Buff Orpington.
    I’ll have a heat lamp in the shed with them.
