I'm sure this has been covered here at BYC, but my forum search didn't yield the answer. My apologies. I also think I know the answer to this, but I want to be wrong! I would like to get some Silkies as broody hens. But I have a LF flock, and no real wish to keep any caged birds or any way to keep yet another separate flock. Can you keep Silkies in a pastured large-fowl laying flock?
