    connor97 Chillin' With My Peeps

    A pet store in my town had silkie hens for sale for 40$ and I couldn't resist. My 6 girls (7-8 weeks old) are being nice to her keeping the pecking to a minimum. And the adult hen hasnt been picking on the little 7 week old chicks at all, the silkie sure is a sweet breed. I hope everything goes well. [​IMG]

    Generally when adding new birds to a flock it is necessary to quarantine. Hopefully she is healthy.
