Yesterday I got a call from a friend whose neighbor had 3 illegal chickens in town. They kept escaping their very small pen and were being found in the road, so the owners wanted to rehome them. When I got there I found that they were Silkies! I was expecting mutts. I took them home and they are being quarantined. They look awfully small to me. Is this just the fact that they are Silkies? Or are they Bantams? Here is a pic of Delilah after her foot bath. (They were pretty poopy when I picked them up. ) She is next to a standard sized can of hair spray. The owners said the girls were about 7 months old and all laying. Can Silkies live with other chickens? Will they get along? We have 10 others, all large fowl-EE's Light Brahmas and Red Stars.
