I have 11 hens and 4 roosters, 2 of which are bantam silkies. Everytime one of the 'big' roos mounts & sexes a hen one of the silkies will always come running and try to get involved. He will pull on the neck feathers and such of the hen being sexed and once it is all over everyone dispurses as per normal. I didn't think the silkies were posing a problem until I started witnessing this bizzare behaviour (or is it?). I suspect I will have to elliminate the silkie roos... Does anyone have any thoughts, such experiences or insight to share?
