Silkie Chickens and other Breeds--ok together?


5 Years
Aug 7, 2014
I have a fairly large flock of 46 hens and 2 roos, five meat birds and some chicks (not yet in with the rest of the flock). I have Rhode Island Reds, Ameracaunas and Barred Rocks. I am obtaining 5 Blue Bantam Silkie chicks (yay!) next week. This will be my first time raising Silkies. I am concerned about how my existing birds will treat them once they are old enough to be intermingled. Please, anyone who has experience with Silkies and other breeds--do they do okay residing together?

I should point out that my chickens are totally pasture-raised. They are only in the coop at night and to lay eggs. The roam 2+ acres freely all day.

Thanks so much!
