I have 4 BO pullets, 1 cockerel, and a silkie pullet (she's supposed to be a pullet but I know its probably too soon to tell for sure) all almost 6 weeks old. I had a second silkie pullet, but she died at 10 days old. I've been contemplating adding another silkie or 2 because I feel bad for the lone silkie. She seems fine with the other birds and there doesn't appear to be a problem with bullying or anything yet. But the big birds are starting to roost and can fly up to the roosts easily and she can't. I feel bad for her. I've tried contacting some local breeders to see if I could add a couple more about the same age but I'm not having any luck getting responses. Should I consider adding an older silkie? There are some available on craigslist (mostly roosters though). There are also some straight run chicks that might be still available on there, but I worry about ending up with a second rooster and I really want to keep my BO rooster so I can hatch out more BOs in the future. If I waited till spring to add more silkies, would they just stay in their own little group anyways and not hang out with my current silkie? This is my first time with chicks and they seem really content so I should probably just leave it alone, but the tiny little silkie makes me feel bad that she has no one else her size to hang out with.
