I have 4 silkies, 2 of which are roosters, and 5 bantams. They've all been raised since they were a few days old and now they are 6.5 months old. One of our hens ("Mama") was the first one to start laying a month ago and she layed every day. The last two weeks she stopped and wouldn't leave the box. We thought she was getting broody even though we take the eggs out immediately. The last few days we started suspecting that maybe it was more than just being broody but that the roosters were picking on her because our and about by herself she acts fine. Tonight I took her out alone to free range for a couple minutes, put her back in the coop and the two roosters attacked and weren't letting go. Very scary moment. Does anyone have any experience with Silkie Roosters ganging up on a hen? How do I get them to stop? Is there a solution? Shouldn't they all be getting along since they've been fine for the last 6.5 months?! It's only happening to this one hen in particular and we aren't sure what to do. We read how wonderful these Roos are for their docile personality but I'm beginning to have my doubts. Please, please help. Any advice and experiences would be most greatly appreciated! Also, she is not going through a molt and the roosters are not aggressive towards each other just to this one bantam hen.
