    I have a black japanese bantam roo & I just got a new black silkie hen (the other passed away.) Last night when I tried to introduce them the roo with the hen the roo went nuts! It jumped all over the new hen tearing, biting & jumping all over it. He actually bit off a piece of her comb. What to do? The hen was terrified. I immediately seperated the two.
