    I am ordering a few more chicks to add to the flock. I wanted to get a black silkie, but I am worried it will be picked on my the other chickens since it would be the only bantam and only silke. Should I get two instead?
     
  2. yes get at least 1 more, silkies get picked on a lot and usually will just hang out with other silkies
