    I just mixed my 3 seven week old silkies, 2 six week old silkies and 6 four week old bantam silkie/pekin mix together in the same run and i am delighted to report they are all getting on great.
    At the moment i have the silkies in 1 brooder and the silkie/pekin mix in another, but seen as they are getting on so well in the run i might put them all in a larger brooder at night to keep each other warmer.
    What do you think?

    They are close enough in age they will probably do great. Especially since they are silkies. They will keep each other warm [​IMG]
