Could a polish bantam be kept with
12 large fowl as a broody bird
Some polish can be kept with other breeds but there is always the risk of them being picked on by the other flock members. 9/10 polish are at the bottom the pecking order.
Is your polish broody now? They are not really a broody breed so it's great if she is. Out of all the polish I have and have had only one has ever gone broody. If she is broody I would highly recommend you seperate her from the flock to hatch and raise chicks.
I have no polish at the moment but
I am after a broody so I might try
Yes a silkie would be better if you are wanting a broody. They are far more inclined to go broody. Pekin bantams are also another breed known for broodiness
Would a silkie be ok with 10 large fowl if all introduced on the same day
Can a silkie be kept in a mixed flock or will it get picked on
I'm afraid more than likely it will be picked on by other flock members. Silkies are often at the bottom of the pecking order in mixed flocks. I can't say this will or will not happen but there is a chance.
I have a white leghorn named foggy she is very nice for a leghorn!
