    Welcome to BYC do you have breeds other than silkies? I ask because many breeds regard silkies(and polish) as non-chickens and tend to bully and pluck their head feathers especially. If breeds are raised together form early chickhood they generally get along but, otherwise they don't mix well.

    Silkies are also extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay. Younger birds will likely not be the sex you are counting on. Hatchery silkies, sometimes lack the principle silkie features.

    We have leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, Production Reds, 1 Korean Black, Plymouth Rock Chicks, 1 Wyandotte Chick, 4 we are not completely sure about yet, and we just ordered 10 White Bresse chicks. We are looking for Silkies, and we are willing to build a new coop or find a way to keep them separated if needed. We would like both hens and roosters (for breeding.)

    Once you have 20 posts you can use the buy-sell-trade forum.

    Good luck finding the birds you want!
