I am getting silkies (my 3 year old son saw some silkies at a breeder and fell in love so I got 3 chicks. (He feeds and waters them 2x a day they are his chickens) 2 passed in the first 2 days not sure why but the 3rd is doing great has most of its feathers and is in with the other chicks i got at the same time. They all snuggle together no one picks on the little guy. Thinking about getting 10 more silkie chicks from Ideal. should I keep the 3 week old silkie with the new chicks or with the ones its age? I have not ordered yet instead on chicks should I go to the local breeder and get some young teen or adult birds? When they get older and start laying I know they go broody. I want to allow them to hatch some chicks. Do I have to move momma and chicks when they hatch or leave them in the coop? If I need to move them what kind of fasilities do I need for them?
