So, we started with 2 chickens (Buff Orpingtons) that really grew on us. When we built the coop for them, I had planned on getting 2 more mostly because everyone told me I would. So I build an A-frame coop/run that had 36 square feet in the run and 24 square feet in the covered coop. We now have 2 new Cream Legbar chicks that are two weeks old and they are in a brooder. The wrinkle is, my wife has seen silkies and really wants one. I'm not really sure how to proceed at this point with mixing the flock and the amount of space I have in the run. I had done research before I started on the coop and built the recommended 15 total square feet per chicken. I think it's going to be a little cramped with 5, and not only that, the 5th will be a bantam. I will add that they get to free range whenever we are home, but I usually put them up when we go to work because we have a couple of hawks in the area. Any advice on how to proceed? Procure the silkie as soon as possible so she can go in with the Cream Legbars due to socialization concerns? And then the space issue is my real concern. Will the silkie be fine in coop/run, even if I do expand it somehow without spending a fortune tearing out what I have already built? Or just tell my wife that it isn't a good idea and that's not coming from me, that is coming from the experts at BYC?
