The problem, is winter is closing in, and we want our living room back!! we have 5 baby silkies, two roos and three hens, and we need to introduce them into a flock of RIRs, all hens. The girls have just begun to lay and are quite big. All the sites I have looked on have said that you should slip the new additions in at night, on the roost, but our silkies CAN'T FLY. Also, they say that you should wait until the are the same size as your existing flock members. But they are BANTAMS!!!
