Hi, I'm very new to chicken keeping, but am already enjoying the process. I recently purchased two young (10wk) pekin bantam hens and intended to add another two of a similar age next week. However, we have since been offered 2-3 Silkie chickens from someone who can no longer keep them. I'm temped to take the offer, but before i do i'd be grateful for BYC's collective knowledge on the following: 1. Can Pekins and Silkies live together happily? 2. Will adding older Silkies to my two young Pekins cause problems? 3. Can these be integrated easily, or would they need to be separated and have separate coops for a period of time? 4. What other questions should i be asking of their current owner? Thank you so much in advance for any advice/help you can offer Doors.
