    Do silkies only come in bantam size? Would the other hens pick on it if i added one to a flock of standard size breeds???

    I have seen some pictures of large silkies, but mostly they are bantam sized. (I have no idea where the larger ones are coming from)

    Many flocks do well with mixed sizes - some flocks do not. No way to really know until you try. Get two or three so they can buddy together and pile together at night (I understand most silkies do not roost).

    I have no silkies, but do have bantams with my large fowl.
