Do you have a silkie rooster? I don't know why I didn't say this before, must have not been thinking, but I do have 2 silkies in with 2 RIR and an Isa brown. One silkie is a rooster and the other is a hen, the other 3 are pullets. I introduced the pullets to the rooster(he was an adult at the time of the introduction) and he took them in ( there was some pecking at the beginning, but now they are fine with each other) and I recently added the hen silkie, who immediately took the position of top hen. Having the top rooster be a silkie seems to dissuade any hens picking too heavily on silkie hens.
