I have a trio of young silkies ( 6 month old roo and 2-4 month pullets ) that I have separated from my flock in a smaller coop and run. I would LOVE to have them in with my other chickens for the winter so I only have one coop to maintain then put them in the smaller one for breeding in the spring. Do you keep your silkies in with your standard breeds? If so how would I introduce them safely to the flock? Put them in the coop at night?
