So I had two four month old silkies. One died so I bought a, whats looksl like two month old silkie. The larger four month old silkie gets along pretty well, but has started pecking at him. Did I accidently buy another rooster? Will they always fight? I seperated them, just wanted to see if they'd mingle. He almost killed the last chicken I tried introducing him to, but this one is getting off alot easier. However he won't even let him inside his chicken coop.

Thoughts?

I'd give it some time, but keep a close watch. I have this problem whenever I introduce a new silkie or two. Usually they settle down after a week or two.
