I've had a lot of problems in the last two weeks with raccoons, cats, and now space. I have a Silkie who hatched out four babies and has been free ranging with her babes for about five weeks. Yesterday, a big cat came into the back yard and attacked the chicks...all got to safety but the cat is hanging about and I'm not losing anymore to the wildlife around here. Question: Can I put Silkie Mama and babies in with four hens and a rooster. Silkie and the other hens were of the same flock before she got broody but she was picked on a bit. The rooster has been with the hens for about a month or so. They have all been in sight of each other since the babies hatched. If it is safe to integrate them how should I go about it? Thanks!!
