    Hey everyone! I currently have 4 red star hens, some kind of white hen and a white Legger rooster! My hens are like My babies :) looking to add some silkies to the mix for them to raise some babies. Any advice or opinions?

    Greetings from Kansas, BigKanKan, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! In addition to the link NFC gave you, here are a couple more: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/introducing-new-chickens-using-the-see-but-don-t-touch-method
    And you might touch base with the folks in the Silkies thread here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread
    and see what they say about integrating Silkies into an established flock. I know nothing of Silkies but have heard they are gentle. That combined with their appearance might make them a target to the other chickens. Hope it all works out! Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under BigKanKan [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and links, I too will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
