I integrated my silkies and the 10 week old chicks today for the winter. I didn't want 6 different pens to care for all winter and wanted most of the birds to be able to free range this winter. So far they are doing well. I now have 37 chickens (including 5 roosters) and 6 ducks free ranging together out there. If I can convince my wife to let me integrate "her" black orp roo (Diesel) and his girls, I'll have them all together for the winter. I think they will just be easier to manage with feed and waterers and free ranging this winter if I do it this way.
