    If I get bantam brahmas and silkies at day old chicks I was thinking about what breed of rooster i would keep. I was thinking would a silke rooster and a bantam brahma rooster be okay with living with each other??? thanks [​IMG] ** they would be raised together from day olds

    They should be fine together, especially if you have plenty of females.

    Yes, they do fine. They are similar in size. The brahma roos are more docile than the silkie roos (at least in my experience), and if you breed silkies and brahmas together the offspring are very nice birds: very pretty, very broody, usually very gentle.
