    First, silkies ARE bantams (unless you are not in the US, in which case they may be largefowl or bantams). No, silkies cannot fly. Depends on the height of the roost as to whether or not they need a ramp. Some silkies will never use a roost, anyways, they would prefer to form a "silkie pile" in a corner of the coop.
