I have two cockerels - raised together, both almost six months old - and their male posturing has become real fighting. My poor silkie has lost lots of feathers and he does not seem interested in roosting with the other birds at this point. The showgirl cockerel seems to be the aggressor, but I'm worried about his safety, as well, because he has no feathers hiding or protecting his neck. I thought that they would work out their differences, but I've begun to worry that they won't. I don't want to have to decide which one to keep and which one to rehome. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? *update* I just went out to check on my silkie and he's much worse for the wear than I thought. The other cockerel has ripped most of the feathers away from his face and there was blood on his wattles. There's no way I can allow them to be out together at this point. I know he must be in pain. I don't know what to do.
