chickens? The reason I ask - When my younger flock gets too close to a member of the older flock, there's sometimes some minor chasing. When both flocks eat scratch together the youngsters know to keep out of the adults way. The exception being the silkies. They mingle freely with the older chickens. DH and I were speculating on this. He thinks it's because the silkies have fuzz and not feathers, so perhaps the adults view them as chicks. I think it's because the adults don't even realize the silkies are chickens. Your guess?
