    Gorgeous silkie bantam chicks 7 weeks old. I have 16 Blue, Black and Splash

    I also have 10 silkie bantams that are 10 weeks old.

    The first 6 pics are of my hens and roosters, then the next 3 are the 10 week olds and the final 3 pics are the 7 week olds.

    We are about 45 minutes from Rockford, in Wayne. St. Charles, Elgin and Bartlett are our closest neighbors. A silkie would be a great gift, they are so cute and docile.

    Hi, I am very interested. I have 4 , 3 wk. old chicks, would it be bad to put them together? And is it better to get 2?

    I sometimes put a divider in between the newer chicks and older chicks if they aren't getting alone. Guess you just have to watch them and make sure the older ones don't pick on the younger ones. I rarely have an issue mixing in chicks of different stages, the silkies are so docile. either 1 or 2 would work since you already have chicks, no one would be lonely[​IMG]
