I posted about this recently but need more advice. Our 4 week old silkies are in a sectioned off area in our coop, and in that area there is also a tote brooder with 4 two week olds in it. On the other side of the coop are my 10 week old barred rocks. I am trying to integrate the 2 week olds with the silkies and it is not going well at all. The silkies immediately start pecking at the babies as soon as I let them out, and the babies screech and run away....so I put them back in their tote. Should I wait a few weeks for the little ones to be bigger and better able to defend themselves? They are Ameraucana and Icelandic....so they will eventually bypass the silkies in size. Our silkies are also terrified of us, and peck at our hands as soon as we try to touch them. It seems like we have angry silkies! I've always heard silkies are so friendly, but so far, the barred rocks beat them by a mile in the friendliness department.
