I have done a lot of research and I'm pretty confident in my decision of getting silkies in April. I already have 3 barred rocks but I heard that barred rocks will pick on the more docile chickens. My chickens are free range in the afternoon and they live in a huge run with a coop attached at night. How should I introduce my silkies to my barred rocks? And are silkies prone to getting eaten by predators? Can they defend themselves? Please give feedback if u actually own a silkie... I need honest answers. Any advice helps!
