Silkies nad larger fowl living together

  1. I am new to raising chickens and was told silkies at any age should not be mixed with larger breeds. Is this true?

    I let my silkies out with my larger girls, they really don't bother them at all. [​IMG] [​IMG] and [​IMG] from S. Florida! Glad you joined us! [​IMG]
