Great to have joined. I only have one red sex link hen she is 3 yrs old. And ruled the roost when I had my other 2 that just past away about 2 weeks ago, we had bad heat/humidity here in MN. I did everything to keep them cool and they just couldn't handle it. Anyway, I was given 2 silkies (hens) the other day. I'm being patient. We setup a dog kennel in the run with a separate wire run for them so SweetPea can see them, I took all 3 out in the yard, they wanted to meet her but she has a little attitude and went after them. I read up that it can take 3-4 weeks for the adjustment. She is a sweet hen and gets up on my lap and follows us around like a little dog I raised her and her "sisters" when they were only a few days old. Maybe a little jealous...and needs time for the adjustment, I really like the silkies, any input would be great! I just love my girls.
