Faverolles and silkies

Can I keep 2 faverolles and a silkie in 30 sqr feet. Will they get on?

They should be fine @ 10sqft/bird.  I've never messed with Silkies - people say they're docile.  People say the same thing about Salmon Faverolles - my rooster was mean as hell...

I didn't like them personally.  I tried them because I wanted to work on a heritage breed.  I wound up giving up on them and gifted them to a relative who wanted to refresh their barnyard mix.  They really liked them (hen since lost to free range predator, still has the rooster), so it's a six of one, half a dozen of the other perspective.  I'd take a barred rock any day of the week over them...
