Hi, everyone! So I've been keeping silkie chickens for a little less than a year. I ended up with mostly roosters out of the chicks I have purchased. I sold some and acquired more females and am trying to catch up with even more females for them. I have noticed feistiness in the cockerals and I have split up the group into pairs right now. I think the girls miss each other, and am worried about the roos being too rough with them. They are not terrible, but I feel like they have their moments, if that makes sense, when I just want to smack them away from the girls for being insensitive and too pushy/rough with them. No one is so bad that I feel he's GOT to go, if that makes sense. There IS calm for a great majority of the day. I would like to learn more about appropriate vs. inappropriate mating, should I be separating the boys from the ladies at any point or would separation cause hormones to rage on even more? Just not sure what to do there. :/ I know people who do just pairs, I know people who also have two roosters and some hens together---- I'd like to hear more thoughts on these ratios please. Any tips, advice, information is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
