I really want to get into bantams and think Silkies are just what I'm looking for, but I had a few questions. First, will they do okay in the south in the summer? Any special considerations? Second, do I need to separate out the broody hens/new chicks from the other hens like with a full sized chicken or can they all be together? I would plan on keeping a few hens with a rooster and let them raise up some chicks whenever they want. I plan on selling the chicks and/or young chickens. I'm also planning on building them a separate coop away from my full sized hens. Would they all be able to roam the yard together (about 1 1/2 acre or so) or should I make a run for the bantams? Thanks for the help!
