Ok, I have two nine week old RIR/EE mutts that are both hens. Today I got two bantam wyandott silver lace hens and took my three little 7 week old boys to a farmer friend. They can't stay. So I have four now and all hens. Goodie!! BUT this week my silkie babies were due. I was planning on incorporating two or three of those if I get some hens. Well my order did not make it due to heat and the Cackle factory rescheduled to Aug 12. THat puts me two weeks away now. Ok in 8 weeks, my silkies could be 6 weeks old and have some size to mix in. The Rir/ee girls will be almost four months and the W.'s 7 months. Can I put six week old silkies in with them??? The Wyandot girls are just the sweetest girls possible. They came from a home where they are raised by a young girl for fair projects and it was a really nice place that they were living at, so they have been given great care. I am going to adore them. Pictures coming up soon. Of course they will need to adjust to my 9 week olds, but the coop is really big and they are all about the same size right now. Tomorrow I will take them all out for some free range time and keep an eye on them all day. Opinions please. I don't want to cancel my silkies. I was so looking forward to them. Thanks.
