    Im just after introducing my miniature sussex to the flock. My other rooster a Silkie went a but stiff at the sight of him but didnt attack him. He even ran under Onzlo ( Silkie ) to hide from Peach, the big territorial oprington:) He's only six months yet, when he gets older and ah more active, will him and Onzlo fight over the nine hens? I dont want either getting hurt!
    Thanks:)
    Heres him trying to out run the hens, but finds himself cornered:) :)

    well 9 hens 2 roosters hmm it depends it could hurt the hens if they ride them to much causing raw backs and unhappy hens plus they may fight i suggest getting more hens
