    I have a few silkies in with the rest of the flock and they get along just fine.

    I let a couple of my broodies (BO & BR) sit on and raise a silkie and EE/leghorn cross each. The silkies ended up being little roos who are just now trying to jump the big ladies with no luck.

    The silkies are so cute with their little pants. Crack me up.

    They even sleep on the big roost with everyone else.
