Description:

Bantam availability for 2019 will be updated in January. Thanks for your patience! (Counting chickens before they hatch is a notoriously tricky business.)

Of all the ornamental chicken breeds, the Silkie Bantam is the most popular and most loved. Can't you tell why? They're the lap dog of the chicken world, complete with hair-like plumage and an incredibly sweet temperament. Silkies were originally bred in China, where they are still kept (and eaten) today. They have black skin and bones and five toes instead of the normal four. In addition, Silkie hens make wonderful mothers and are even known to adopt baby ducks if given the chance! You will get a mix of bearded and non-bearded varieties with your Silkie order. 

And, according to a recent poll we conducted, Silkies are a favorite choice as a pet for children! When stacked up against super popular breeds like Orpingtons, Cochins, Brahmas and Easter Eggers, they were a top choice. See the results, here.

PLEASE NOTE: the color blue does not hatch true in chickens. Blue is a diluting gene for black. So, 50% will hatch blue, and 25% will be black. The last 25% will be "splash," having received two diluting genes. Splash is a very light color, pale blue or white with "splashes" of black and darker blue in the feathers, especially in the wings and tail. Please keep in mind when you order that not all of your blues will actually be blue! Learn more about BBS genetics.

In addition, you will get a mix of bearded and nonbearded Silkies in your order.
