roo attack?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by ilovemychickies, Jan 9, 2008.

  1. Hi y'all! I have a roo and a silkie that we have no idea what gender she is. Whenever we put the roo in with "her" the roo gets on top of "her", grabs the fluff on her head, and yanks hard. Does anyone know what he is doing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! [​IMG]

    That is a very subtle way of stating what I was going to say.

    really... it sounds like they're in pain [​IMG]
     
  9. I'm not sure if she is in pain or not. When I told mom that we might have some chicks soon, she had me take the roo away from the hen. Mom said that she didn't really want bb red mixed with silkie. [​IMG] But she said that if we do end up with eggs, that we can keep them and raise them. I love my momma so much! [​IMG]
