I have a very small flock of 6 silkies (2 hens, 3 chicks and 1 roo) and 2 orpington hens. The breeds were separated a while back when I found out I had an orpington roo and really should be kept with the silkies. I rehomed him and will be soon rehoming 2 silkie chicks and a hen leaving the 3 silkies and 2 orpingtons in separate coops still. I would really like to merge the two and have them all live together under one roof so I can free up one of the coops and use it for my three ducklings I will be getting in two weeks. What is the best way to go about this? Is it even a good idea? Would you move the silkies to the orpingtons or the orpingtons to silkies? They all free range together during the day but they tend to keep their distance from each other on our acre lot. The orpingtons range all over the yard while the silkies usually tend to stay on their "side" of the yard and pretty close to their coop. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
