    I had two Silkie hens up until one of them passed away. They were very close, and I feel like my other one is getting lonely. I feel like you always need to have at least two Silkies because they'll kind of ignore the other chickens. She's very lonely so please help! Do not care if the hen has crossed beak or is not show quality. I keep all of my chickens until the end of their lives and treat them like any other pet I have. I'm also interested in a bantam (hen) companion for my TINY black d'Uccle bantam (shown in pics above). Thanks!

    I just got a new silkie from dynamite silkies (look for her on facebook) for the very same reason and couldn't be happier. Look her up and good luck finding your silkie her friend!

    I have four silkie hens. 3 of them are old. I do the same thing I just let them live out their days as pets. They are still good Brooders. The other is less than a year and I was wanting a companion for her since the others are old. Where are you located?
