Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
If the new Silkie is the only one, that makes things even more difficult. A single bird is harder to integrate than multiple and birds that look vastly different than the others makes it harder still.
LOTS of space, resources and time lead to a successful integration.


Enjoying Life!

Hi....two months ago my daughter brought home a chicken she found on the highway. We decided to keep “her” and get a coop/run. We bought 3 more chickens so that one would have a flock. Surprise! Turned out to be a roo. I found a good farm for him. Now I have three 5 mo. old pullets and decided to adopt a 5 mo. old silkie yesterday. It’s been rough with them accepting her. How long does it take? I have 2 Wyandottes, a Leg Bar, and the new silkie. They hate her :-(
