My litttle silkie Pecky is growing up and trying to find his place with his more aggressive stepchicks. The other chicks I got to keep him company were the same age and they picked on him so I got 3 younger chicks to keep him company. Some of them were even aggressive to the little silkie, so I kept him with a little black bandy and they became fast friends and Pecky was like a mother to little Blackie. Blackie is a month old now and Pecky is 6 weeks old. I had hoped that one of them was a hen, but they are both showing play fight behavior. We will have to wait and see.
