When is the best time to buy a new pullet? Can i keep it in the house untilit needs to forage?
Hi! Most feed stores get shipments in the spring. It would be good to get chicks enough in advance of winter that they are grown and fully feathered. Some people have an outside brooder, but most people keep them in a brooder in a spare room or garage with a heat lamp. Good luck!
Would you keep a few Silkies with a Orpington?
Sure, they're both docile breeds. However, it would be ideal to raise them as chicks, so the chance that the Orpington is nice to the Silkies is larger. If not, the Orpington (who is a large bird) would maybe take advantage of the smaller Silkies.
That sounds good cuz I'd like the Buff to be my egg layer and the others just for fun
