Right now I have my silkie roos in with my Wyandotte hens. The roos do mate with them & the hens don't pick on the roos if that is your concern.

Yeah, I am considering rehoming my slw cockerel, and getting a silkie roo to go with my hens. Somehow I think the silkie would be alittle easier on their necks and backs. Also, tamer; my slw cockerel shanked my little sisters freind in the tummy yesterday, I am SOO glad he dosent have his spurs yet!!!

My hens don't have any feather damage, so you are right the silkie would probably be easier on their necks & backs. I do have one mean silkie roo, but he can't jump up pass my ankles
