    I have a silkie hen , last week I had to get rid of my silkie rooster thinking it was a good idea for my hens. I have 5 other hens of various breeds. My problem is now my silkie hen will not go into coop at night stays at the door. I would like to add that the silkie is deffiantly at the bottom of the pecking order, anyone have any ideas why she won't go in is it Becuse her silkie buddy is gone or the hens just not allowing her in?

    Sorry for the trouble. I have noticed with the silkies that I care for with our local FFA chapter. The hen silkie does what her "boy" does. If he sleeps outside she does.
