    I got a few Silkies a couple of weeks ago. They are about 5months old. Then, this past weekend I decided to get Silkie chicks. I got 6 of them. But now, I am wondering what breed would get along well with my Silkies. Can anyone give me any ideas?

    I really like Bantams... I think that I want to stick with that.

    I, personally, have not had a problem with any of my chickens not getting along with my Silkies.
    Silkies are so gentle by nature and seem to just hang out by themselves that they don't pose much of a threat.
    My Silkies are raised with Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Australorps, d'Uccles, Seramas, Easter Eggers, Polish, and Black Copper Marans.

    Alrighty, cool. I am thinking about getting some bantam cochins or bantam buff orpingtons. :)
