Here are Ben, our Silkie rooster, and Lili, our Maltese. Separated at birth?
One of our very first roosters, #1 Papa, was unbelievable. When our first Silkie hen, Cleo, would get off the nest for food or other necessities, he would lay on the clutch of eggs. Cleo tolerated him, but when another Silkie got off her clutch and he tried to help her out the same way, she let him know she was not
happy. You know what they say about an old mother hen!
