    Hello- i have 4 3 1/2 week old Silkie chicks that were separated from the other 11 chicks after about a week. I was afraid because of the size difference they would get trampled. Our other chicks are the same age and are a mix of different breeds(all larger). Now that they are about 4 weeks old and a little bigger i want to have them coexist with the rest of the flock. The other birds are about 3-4 time bigger than the slikies. Is it safe to bring them all together again? Or will the larger birds hurt or kill the smaller ones? Any help or suggestions given are much appriciated! God Bless!
