In the Brooder
- Mar 15, 2018
We're looking to add more chickens to our flock. Our flock is really small, we only have 4 girls right now ranging from 3-5 years old, an Easter egger, barred rock, and two orpingtons. None of the birds are overly aggressive, but do tend to stand their ground if they feel another hen is out of line according to the pecking order. I read that Silkies can be really sensitive if they get their head pecked and lead to something severe which worries me, do you think this is a good fit for my flock or should I steer in another direction? I'm planning to get 2 silkies, and then 2 orpingtons a couple weeks later when the hatchery gets their shipment in.
