    I wanted to order some polish chicks and thought about having silkies as well. Can they
    Live together or is this a bad idea? Right now I have 1 polish roo and polish hen living with my standard chickens and he gets pecked on the head constantly raw. So I'm making him a home alone and was going to introduce the new chicks his breed and possibly silkies to him when they are full size of course. Advice needed

    Mine got on fine and i'm planning on doing that again [​IMG].
    Since they are both crested chickens it seems to help.
    I'm planning on having polish, silkies, and sultans together.
