    So I am adding a BLRW and a white silkie. I have never raised these guys before, so I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on caring for them, regular info, or things I should know? Thank you!

    Some silkies dont roost, they like to huddle in piles in the corner of the coop! lol They get very dirty feet and if yours are really good quality, you may have to trim the crest for them to see. Silkies are usually at the bottom of the peck order so they may fight and peck at them.
