I'm expecting a batch of 6 silkie chicks in June, but I would like to have a couple standard-size chickens as well. I've heard that many folks do this without problems, particularly if the chicks are raised together. But are there particular breeds of SF that might be more amenable? I love the look of Dominiques, Barred Rocks, gold-laced wyandottes, and RIRs (I know the RIRs can be more aggressive). And the thought of some EE colored eggs or dark brown ones would be nice too. So, who's standard size but on the "smaller end" of standard....and docile both for our enjoyment and the safety of the Silkies? Of course my husband wants nothing but Silkies anyway...but I figure I have to arm myself with data.
