I have a classic obnoxious sebright rooster with my backyard flock comprised of 4 BO, his brother, another submissive sebight and 2 silkie hens. The rooster is very vocal and protective. if your back is to him, he will try to flog you, which I chalk up to approproate protectiveness and bad behavior on our part- never turn your back on a rooster. When/if he does this, we pick him up and he calmly takes his "time out" He attempts to mount the BOs. He ignores one silkie but will chase down the other, as if she is a rooster. She has no rooster qualities at 8 mos of age (whereas a clutch mate had long been crowing- RIP fox bait). So my dilemma: Do i get him some sebright hens to expend his enegies appropriately or will his behavior heighten, to the detriment of my silkie, and/or his brother? If I make soup, will his brothers behavior become more dominant without him? Currently they roost together...would this relationship change if their were breedable girls in the mix? Thanks for your insight!
