Hi - I have two young 15wk silkie roos (I assume - they are both crowing!) that are beautiful, but I am not sure which colors they are. I would like to breed them next spring with my white silkie hen, and wondering as well what color results I might with this mix? How many can they hatch successfully? I know they are good mothers! I have been looking for another silkie hen, especially black, but no luck yet. We just LOVE them!! These three silkies live with 13 other large breed chickens (they are all 8wks old) that they have been raised with. I am attaching photos for any thoughts!! Thanks so much in advance! Valerie p.s. Also, any thoughts as to whether these two roos can live successfully with both a blue ameraucana roo AND blue orpington roo? Total of 12 hens (one is white silkie hen) and 4 roos = 16 total in coop. These other two roos are part of a group of 12 that are 8wks and moved into coop recently, and we are hoping to keep them, but are waiting to see how it goes. I thought if one had to go it would be the orpington as he is huge, but we like them both. I am also wondering if having one bantam hen in there will be unsafe for her? She grew up with the buff brahma and the two silkie roos since days old, but just got mixed with the other 8wk standard breeds - she is pecking them and bossing them around with no issue, so maybe OK? She lived in the coop first though! Like I said, I've been looking for another silkie hen, but do I need another bantam hen period? Our coop is 8x8 with LOTS of high roosts and have very large rotating free range areas. They all seem to get along well so far! My 15wk brahma is naturally the queen, but not bugging the others too much - I think the sheer number of younger ones helps a LOT! Photos 1 and 2 are Daffodil, and 3 and 4 are Lavender. Needless to say with the names, we originally thought they both were hens!! LOL.
