:no: My Californian buck is rooming with a pair of silkies....all about 7 months old. The last few weeks we have notices the buck has started to chase the silkies & hold on to the tail feathers. As he is holding on, he seems to be trying to line them up for some luvin'. The silkies try to pull away, but he is holding on pretty good. Sometimes the silkie roo will start pecking the bucks head so he will let go.The female is much smaller & not as successful. My question...can the buck hurt the silkies? Today I noticed the roo was wet on the tail & curve of the back ( I have seen the buck lay his head there, to "pretend" he is not going for the tail / then he grabs on) * Is there anything that can be done for an amorous buck? ( permanent girlfriend?) Thanx for any replies, I know it's maybe silly to be concerned but better to know Before a problem arises!
