    Hi, so I am getting new chickens added to my flock! Two silkie's! And I would like to know if I let them out to be free range unattended all day, is there a small chance one of them could get lost? Because they are newbies and do not really know there way around?

    You should probably keep them in their coop and run for about 2 days to ensure they have a strong sense of home. After that, they should be fine. I hope you enjoy your silkies!
