    Does anyone have pics of a run or a place for silkies to stay instead of with the rest of the hens where they could get picked on.
    I have an old run but I feel like it would be to small for them to 'live' in. I just need some ideas for my silkies that I will have in about 2 weeks.

    I will be getting silkies in May. I just plan on building them a small separate coop and run to stay in along with the bantam Polish and cochins I'm getting at the same time. It's going to be in the middle of my vegetable garden, so these girls will be on bug patrol. There will be a broody pen close by since their other job will be hatching and caring for any chicks.

    I have my silkies and a sizzle in their own coop with a separate run. They do fine.
