Well here's my dilemma, I live in the city...I am allowed by law to have 25 chickens...I currently have 13 hens and I just hatched 10 BBS ameraucanas but I am only keeping 2 of these guys and selling the others on...so this will give me 15 hens...they have a big yard that they free range from morning to night as well as a good size enclosed run and coop if needed. But now I WANT two silkies to add to the flock and I want to hatch them NOW...my ameraucanas are only a week old! Am I being greedy and not thinking of the birds space and wellfare? Am I becoming a chicken hoarder? My friends already think I am a crazy chicken person. Will silkies be ok in a flock of different breeds...orpingtons, Cochins, ameraucanas, BCM....? Will they be picked on for being fluffy?
