They'll probably stay with the silkies till they are old enough not to squeeze through. But I'll most likely wire the bottom anyway because I may use their broodiness to my advantage and have the hens hatch pheasant eggs( next year obviously because they'll be too young this season). I'm pretty excited to get them, I've heard many great things about the breed.
