Baby Chicks: Blue Silkie Bantam
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
We offer these beautiful Blue Silkies, which will make a great addition to your backyard chicken flock. 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 a 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.
