So I used to have twi little hens as indoor outdoor pets. They played outside during the day and during storms or at night came inside and cuddled in the bed. Sadly on of my sweet babies passed away from mareks last August and ace has been alone until now so I did some research and got a little baby silkie. Its 4 days old and since silkies are so hard to sex and I got her from a straight run she might be a he. I researched some more and found out you can nueter a rooster! lol I don't know much other than that itll basically turn them into a hen. They wont crow, theyll be broody, get fatter, and more docile. If it does turn out to be a rooster should I caponize. Is there any long term things that would affect his health. Is it safe Do vets nueter chickens? Would he be more cuddly caponized. Should I just him if he is a rooster or would him and just 1 hen get along. I only got another one because I didnt want ace to be alone when I'm out and about and not with her.
