    Has any one ever heard of this my black roo sat on the nest with his to hens now he helps brooding the chicks get under his wings
     
  2. Serama Roosters are very attentive to their flock and seem to be very gentile so It would not surprise me that he would help with all aspects of chick raising along with his hen.

    I've read several instances of silkie roos doing the same thing. I think it also happens sporadically in other breeds as well. Wish you'd film it - we're love to see. My friend has 2 serama hens and silkie hen and silkie (special needs) roo as housepets.
