Considering ordering 3 silkies. They are in my online cart. But should I? In a perfect world, one of my current 4 pullets would go broody, and I'd order these chicks and stick em under her. But that can't be predicted (obviously). I could raise them in the brooder in the coop (separated from the flock, of course). But then what? Could they be integrated? And silkies often sell out quickly. I will have to order soon if I want sexed pullets from MPC. I have a BPR, a BO, a white Cochin, and a buff Brahma. They were raised together and are about 6 months old. They aren't very aggressive, but the BO has gone after my dog before. And a squirrel. And my Brahma doesn't care for wild birds. I have lots of space, and my flock free ranges for several hours every day. I recently added on to my coop to account for chicken math, and I built a separate "pen" in my coop for this purpose. I really really really want silkies. But I also really really really don't want to set up any silkies for failure. They are smaller. They look different. They have soft spots that make them vulnerable. I've read that mixed flocks are possible. I've read that birds that in flocks with a variety of colors and sizes sometimes don't mind weirdos. I've read that silkies often and up at the top of the packing order. Thoughts?
