Hi everyone. I just saw the most adorable silkie on craigslist, and I was wondering if my flock would beat her up. I have 5 opingtons, 1 aracauna, 1 huge blue cochin rooster, 2 young leghorn cockerals, 1 RIR.

Would it be bad to introduce a strange bird like this into the flock? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I can give you advice how I introduce new birds to my flock. I have a rather large avairy that is 20'x40' that I have pheasants, ducks and chickens all in. I have a rather large cage that I built, and when I introduce new birds into the avairy, I put them in it for a few days, right in the middle of the avairy so the other birds get used to seeing them, and after about a week, at NIGHT I let the newbie birds out.

I haven't had a problem yet!! Good luck
