    I have been thinking of getting Silkies but I don't know if they will get along with my other chickens. My other chickens are Speckled Sussex and Barred Plymouth Rocks. Thanks

    Silkies raised with large fowl frequently do fine. Introducing them to an established flock can be difficult because of their smaller size and mild temperaments.
