Chicken addiction

Hi all,
I live in town with 2 Hollands,3 silkies,1 polish,Golden lace wing,1 leghorn,1 Americana,1 wellsummer.
I have a chicken addiction.:p
I was addicted until I had to re-home a couple that went aggressive toward a Silkie pullet. Now we don't keep anything over 5-lb to prevent the temptation to bully gentler or smaller fowl. We whittled it down to 4 hens from 8 and only kept the gentler lighter weight fowl. BTW I like the breeds you have. How do they get along? I like 3 Silkies together but I feel sorry for any Polish alone in a flock as they are gentle and startle so easily because of their crest.

Hello freedom from WA. How is your single Polish getting along with her flockmates? I always feel so sorry for crested breeds who are the only one in a flock. Crested breeds spook so easily and usually are so gentle. How did you manage to find Hollands and are yours laying white or tinted eggs?
