I have five chickens. four pullets; leghorn, silkie, autrolorp (sp?), easter egger, and the fifth a rooster silkie. So far all is harmony, the oldest pullet is the alfa and does a great job with the chickens. They follow her out and in the coop. All seems great. The rooster, silkie, is still very young, and just very vocal recently trying to crow. Recently when I gave treats, the rooster chased a treat close to two of the pullets and brushed by them and they immediately laid down. I was surprised to see this. They should be laying soon I am concern, do too having such a small group of gals, will this bring problems when the rooster hormones kick in. I love how well my head pullet (being the oldest) takes such great care of the flock. My issue is should I relocate the Rooster, so the flock is not stressed in the future? also I have another silkie (pullet), which they currently pile up on each other at night. Will she be okay if I remove the male silkie? Winter is coming and need to make a decision to relocate before people don't want to have a male silkie. Does anybody have had good experience with a silkie rooster, or am I in for some troubled chickens. I'm not sure what to do? Wait it out for the winter and see, which scares me as I had earlier this summer a very mean rooster I replaced. Help with advise.
