I'm just planning ahead for this spring when I'm sure I will be unable to resist the chick fluffs at TSC. We currently have a flock of 33 standard sized hens who are all around a year old. We just recently lost our rooster and I am thinking of getting another one when we get some chicks. I'm thinking of getting a couple large fowl pullet chicks and a few silkies pullets and a silkie cockerel. How does it usually go adding new young ones to a flock? What age seems to be the best for integration? Will it work to add silkies to my flock if I have a couple large fowl chicks in the group of newbies?
