Should I rear my silkie babe's away from the other chicks and checkens?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am new to this forum and my flock consists of 5 grown phoenix, 1 grown RIR, and chick ( whick are close to the same age) 2 silkies ( possibly one male), 2 guinneas, 6 Plymouth rocks( 2 being roosterish) and 2 RIR girls.  The older chickens and rooster do not pick on the babies they are free range and only come to roost at night. All the chicks are about 2 months old. These are my first silkies.

If your Silkies and already existing flock are getting along together then I would let them be.

I don't think I have to worry about my silkies any more. Not sure if I have2 males, but definitely one, by his behavior. They are a couple of gangsters in the coop and chase off the 2 roosters. They don't mess with the hens, but my grey one spars with one of the Rocks. My little black one just chases them off.
