    Alright :( and he was one of my favorites! We can't keep him cause our one orpington rooster keeps pecking at him and the silkie won't peck back - he's so much smaller so I have to find him a home than. Thank for the help though!

    my first silkie roo was an escape artist and would get into the other breeds pens and beat up the roos that were much bigger and heavier you might be able to keep them both with little problems
