    What kind of eggs are you waiting on? Mine are polish buffs. not a very useful chicken...but they are cute. I want to get a roo for my "Hard working girls...but haven't found the right boy yet." I once put a silkie roo in and they were on him pretty bad....not sure why Im so new at all this I have only had chickens for a year now

    I am waiting on RIRs and Wheaten/Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas. Yeah it gets tricky but I was able to introduce my RIR roo after the hens were about 6 months old with no problems. I guess it just depends on the bird itself. Was your silkie smaller than the hens?
