    Do silkies mix well with polish?

    I've had both in flocks with various breeds. Both breeds are considered at a higher risk for bullying and Silkies generally have a sweet nature. Polish can be a little skittish because of lack of visibility due to their crests, but I've found them to be quite gentle. They shouldn't have problems together, if you ask me. [​IMG]

    Thanks, I may be tempted to get some them as they are lovely looking birds.

    Is this about mixed flocks or mixing breeds to get mutts, I'm interested in both!

    I have my pair of silkies but just wanted to get a couple of polish hens to go in with them, not to particularly breed. My kids would love them.
