    I am looking for a young pullet around 10-13 weeks old, I have one silkie around this age and I think she needs a fluffy friend. My roo and other pullets are all standard sized assorted layer breeds. They get along fine with the silkie I have but I still think a friend that looks like her will be good for her.

    It would be very helpful if your put your location in your post. I have five 10 week old silkies. I am in eastern NC, 40 east of Raleigh.

    Yeah that would have been helpful, but unfortunately I've recently lost both my silkies one to sour crop (took her to the vet but she just didn't make it) and the other just this morning to a hawk...so I just think it means I'm not meant to own silkies. Thank you though for posting.
