I have been trying to integrate 2 silkie girls (5moths old) to my mixed flock of 6 month olds since early Oct. I tried pulling the bully but a new one just takes their place. The silkie girls now hide all day and won't go into the run. The group did accept a silkie rooster in Aug with no issues. At this point they seem tormented and I was thinking of pulling them for the winter and building them their own place in the spring. Will the older ones mellow once they start laying? Could I try putting them back in the spring? I would build a silkie hut in the sunroom for the winter. I really like these girls and want to keep them or else I would just give them to one of my chicken friends.
