    Hi guys! Pease help me. I have two female silkie chickens and need a male for chicks. Should I buy him as a chick , which have been DNA tested, or a juvenile and quarantine him? I want him to be kind to the females and not attacking me. We are also going to buy two other female silkies. What should I do? Please help. Thank you so much!

    I would get a juvenile male then he would get used to you as a young chick. Also if you get him juvenile then don't pick him up that much because that is a sign of dominance over him so in the future he will be intimadated by you and may want to attack you. If he does try to attack you stand your ground and don't act like your afraid. When my rooster was showing signs of wanting to attack me he snaped out of it by saying his name.
