    [​IMG] I live in the country near Montreal Quebec, Canada. I have 40 chicken from white / blue silkies, brahma, cochin, polish, marans, ameraucana, 3 goats, 10 rabbits, 2 dogs and 2 kids who love playing with the little chicks. My coop is an old little barn that we modified for the chicken. This year I went a bit overboard, finally found my silkies and cochins. Just waiting to see how many will be roaters and hens. Hopefully one of each. I found this site a while back when I was looking for ideas to improve my coop. It is nice to see others who have the same passion.
     
  2. Can silkies be mixed with the larger breeds? I recentle bought a pair of white silkies and am concerned they will be to stressed out with the larger breeds.
