Hi, We recently brought 3 silkie bantam hens. I have kept standard sized chickens before but I am new to silkies so I have a couple of questions.
I used to keep the other hens in their own run because if I let them into the rest of the garden they would scratch all the mulch off the flower beds and pull out any smaller plants. Do Silkies do this too?
They seem very passive so far .... mostly staying close together and not exploring much is this their usually behavior or are they just settling in (we have had them 3 days now)?
Is there anything else I should know about keeping silkies?
