Or will the others beat them up too bad? I have standard EE's, standard Barred Rocks, a standard light brahma, and Japanese bantams. I want to increase my # of bantams, but don't know if silkies are the way to go. I am thinking about them because they are easy to get and they should lay much better than the Japanese bantams.
Can silkies get along with other chickens?

I think as long as their crest and beards are not too big and they can see, they are fine. I have a pair that have free-ranged and cooped with my big girls and even a light brahma roo that get along fine.
