My friend has 4 or 5 chicks that are 5 weeks old. She wants to get a laying hen. She really wants a silkie, but we can't find one in our area. When I got my silkie, I was able to add her to the chicks when they were around that age without a problem. But, are there any other breeds of chickens that would be non aggressive towards young chicks?
