    O.K, if i add new female silkies to a female silkie will anything go wrong?? fights?? Any help please...Thanks!
  2. Oh yes, they should have a dustup but nothing really horrible, just noisy little squaaaaarks. Just block your ears!!
    how many new ones are you adding, what is the new vesus established ratio?
    I find silkies are nicer than other breeds and quicker to welcome newbies.
    You could try the old separation thru the wire trick but they will still have a small dustup when they get together, ill send them some silkie be nice karma!!!
