So I have 4 RIRs and now I have 2 EE hens as well. I just introduced the EE's on Tuesday, and after a few hours of battle I think they're settling in OK (my RIR's still peck them occasionally). We are looking at two silkies, a roo and a pullet, that are about 6 months old, same age as my others. I would really like to get this pair, they are so cute and sweet. Does anyone house silkies with heavy breeds? Do ya'll think this will work or should we pass on these cuties? I don't want them to end up hurt. My RIR's are pretty laid back, but they did put a whoopin on the EE's when they first arrived. I don't think I realized how big they were until I put in the EE hens with them!
