    I've been thinking about adding 2 silkies to the 6 white leghorns I have already. The leghorns are 2 weeks old. If I were to get 2 week old silkies, could they all go in the brooder together or would there be issues?

    My husband doesn't want me to get anymore right now, so it'll have to wait. Next year I'll probably be asking how to introduce new chickens to a flock. ;)
