    I've been looking at purchasing more chickens as three of mine are roosters and I have come across several different breeds. I, of course, know the Rhode Island Reds; however, I recently viewed a post for frizzles, silkies and sizzles. I know what each type looks like; however, I would like to know the temperment of these birds. Are they behaved enough to be incorporated with my existing hen? Any suggestions or answers are greatly appreciated.

    They are friendly and shy. They are more likely to be bullied then bully other chickens.
    I have one Silkie and she's at the bottom of the pecking order.
    What breed is your existing hen?

    She's a black copper maran.

    They should be fine. As long as you make sure she doesn't bully them.
