Mixing breeds

post #1 of 3

A friend of mine is getting a few hens soon and was wondering if two faverolles would be OK to put with a silkie with out the silkie getting bullied.

If it's just one silkie by itself then theres a good chance it will get picked on a bit. But with careful introduction, side by side interaction for a while. The physical meeting shouldnt be any worse than normal. She'll probably just be at the bottom of the pecking order.

Would it be safer to squash 2 silkies and 2 favs in 30sqft or just get 3 of one breed
