Hi, there my name is Sara 1st time chicken mom... I have 11 ladies and 1 rooster, all different breeds from the barred rock to the silver laced Wyandotte... I got all of these chickens at once almost a year ago at a day old and they all get along great... my husband recently got me 3 white silkies 2 female and 1 male, they are about 4 months old I've tried to slowly integrate the silkies in with my older birds and it's not going well they get picked on and pecked at, when I returned home from work it was to late.. my bigger birds killed one of my silkies. Needless to say I am so upset by this! Does anyone have any advice on what to do before I loose another silkie?? Thanks!
