    I am sooo furious right now!!!!!! My main silkie breeding rooster just got killed by my spare one. I have a run attached to my coop with a little door and my spare rooster must have opened that small door open and attacked my good rooster!!!! Ughhh Here is a picture of my favorite (now dead!) rooster and you will understand why I am sooo mad!

    are you positive he was killed by your other rooster and not something else? I have had silkie roosters fight before, usually only when I reintroduce them after breeding season, but never have they killed another roo.

    I am pretty much 99% positive because my spare roo killed the other one. It got in my coop before and the other one just hid in a corner while he was getting attacked. This time I didnt catch them in time... I almost killed my spare roo!!!!!! I could have broke his neck quick!!!!!

    I've never had a silkie roo kill another. I did sell one and the owner said he was killed by another silkie roo. This was within 2 days of his new home, so I contribute stress and heatwave we had.

    Are they related? Just wonder if they were father and son you could breed the little devil and maybe hatch some blacks with a less aggressive personality. (Then sell little devil)

    So sorry this happened.

    it is terrible when our chicks get attached from predators, but one of the other boys? that is just awful.

    Yeah they are brothers! Raised together for months... The one that died was very gentle and was pretty much a little hen. My spare roo was VERY mean to others and sometimes me! Here is a picture of the murderer!

    I know yall understand how mad and sad I am right now... My family has no clue! He didnt have many flaws and was the sweetest thing! I cant get my hand on my spare rooster yet because I know I would kill him quick. Too bad I need him. Hes my last black rooster left. Ughh its always the best roosters you have that die. I didnt think that he would be so mean to kill another silkie but the one that died was huddled in the corner with his head between his legs poor thing.... I could cry thinking about it!

    Oh and thanks everyone! I know you can all relate a bit! I just about want to quit breeding these silkies now that my main rooster is gone. May cull down and keep a few of the really good hens to keep as pets now. [​IMG]
