    It's taken since May, but our two flocks have finally merged into one!! Never thought I'd see them all eating treats out of the same bowl and stealing food from each other's beaks. Below are the new members of the flock. The older girls are off somewhere but you can see how happy the youngsters are :)

    Definitely added a crazy element to chicken ranging. Running interference like an over-worked ref! Congratulations on your flock integration! I'll have to check out your Pinterest page :)

    Thanks!

    Chickenfan, I've read that a number of people don't integrate silkies into their flocks, because they tend to get beat up. Hopefully they'll just take a little longer to work it out. Good luck!!
