    I am planning on ordering some chicks from Cackle Hatchery, and just had a question. Is it o.k. to have silkie chicks and polish and NNs in the same order? I only want a few of each, and the min. order is 15-----I'm ordering 20 chicks altogether. I just didn't know if the tiny silkie chicks would be o.k. in with chicks of larger breeds.

    Yup, they'll be fine we ordered silkies and Light Brahmas together and they did fine and were even brooded together.

    I think they"ll be fine, when I first got my chicks one was way older:old than the rest and much larger but we didn'
    t have any trouble with them fighting when they were chicks.

    Thank you, I was worried about the other chicks being heavier than the silkies and crushing them or something.
