post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello all. I have four 1 year old BO.  who tend to be friendly ,,, for the most part. But I have recently purchased six silky chicks.  Do I need to build another coop or could they co exist together ..And if so When and how do I introduce them?  PS my coop is 8x8 and they free range for most of the day.  Ty in advance for all your help.

BOs tend to be more easy going, but silkies tend to draw attention to themselves too. I always recommend keeping bantam and large breeds separately, especially silkies. These two breeds are the reason I started two separate coops. It could work, or it couldn't, it depends on the temperament of your birds, how well the silkies can see and if you are willing to try it.
