    This poor guy just don't seem to fit in anywhere. I put him with my standard hens and if I could understand chicken I swear they laugh at him. I put him in the silkie pen and he went after them to hurt them. Probably because they are young but I hate for him to live alone. He's nearly 2 years old and has only had 1 hen and he is very fertile. Every egg produced a chick. He will protect his ladies with a vegence. I just don't have a flock to put him with. I actually paid for him and had him shipped to me so he costs me a bit. It would be great if somebody had an EE too to trade. That would work better for me and my girls. I put the blue Oprhington cockerel in with them but he's too big. After a few more onths he will have to come out or he will hurt a hen with his girth.
    This is the hen he was with

    All of the chicks turned out with black skin. Some had 5 toes, some 4 and some with both.
