When we got these hens, our dogs ran out and they flew off high into the trees, on the roof etc. Now we have accommodated them with our regular chickens. We had 6 chickens - one laying silkie mix who is very broody and has raised two sets of babies including a big red that hatched out of a bunch of eating eggs our neighbor gave us. There is the main rooster who came with her, two other roosters which were their babies, the large red hen and a dominique mix that was given to us as a baby.
One of the roosters was the bottom of the pecking order... BUT when these girlies arrived he took up with them and hangs with them wherever they go.
They have laid a total of 3 eggs, not sure at all which of them is doing the laying, but the eggs where paler and larger than the silkie eggs which are medium size [bigger than bantam eggs but not large].
They roost under the carport on a shambolic chicken 'house' made up of an old bed bottom, a big wooden board and an old soft tub!!!
All the eggs bar one were laid in one of the two nesting boxes that our regular silkie lays in. One was found at the back of the house where we saw her making a little nest behind a stacked pallet against the wall.
