I have a 4 silkies roughly 5 months old and a Cochin bantam that hangs with them and I am wonder if having them live with the laying hens is a good idea. I never see them happier then when they have the coop and run to themselves when the hens are ranging around. Right now both groups sleep in the same coop but go their separate ways when the door opens in the morning. They seem happy, everyone is growing and healthy but I wonder if they might be happier if I divide the coop and run in half and keep them permanently separate? my 6 month old pullets pick on the silkies but never any serious attacks or injuries, just a little chasing. I am new to raising chickens and am now a little over my head. I am madly in love with my silkies but I am afraid I am not giving them what they need. Any advice would be great.
