We want to get a silkie hen (preferably grey! ), but need some more information. We've never had them before, and know very little about them. We want to get a 4 or 5 month old hen so that we'll be able to introduce her in with our Americaunas. I have a couple questions for all you Silkie experts. First of all, should she and the Americaunas get along after a week or so of indirect contact in the coop? Is there anything about them that will require special upkeep or anything like that? Would she go broody on the other hens' eggs? We'd love for her to hatch a clutch of Americauna or gold sex link eggs. I know they don't lay very often, but how many eggs do you guys usually get? One or two a week? Or less than that? If they will hatch eggs, would they mother the chicks? If she were to go broody, what would we have to do for her? Are they generally friendly and docile? Any other information you feel we ough to know I'd really appreciate answers to some of these questions! I think a Silkie would be great fun, but I just wanted to get a little more background info before we jump into anything. Thanks guys!
