As long as the girls are nice to him it should be fine.

The silkies can mate the standard hens most of the time. And I'm sure he'll appreciate the company.

Let us know how it goes.

My experience with silkie roos is that they tend to choose favorites. like my roo only likes big mama and star and wont mate with wendy and angel.
