So I am very new to raising chickens, right now we have 7 (we started with 10) meat chickens and 4 ducks. We have a huge area for them to run and a huge chicken coop. We are planning on adding 15 laying hens in a separate area with a different coop. I really want to add 5 silkies to the laying hens but from what I have read you can't have them correctly sexed, so my questions is will it be a problem having male silkies in with laying hens? Or should we put them in with the meat chickens since we aren't planning on using the eggs form the silkies? We are planning on using the eggs from the laying hens to eat.
