Description:

Silkies were originally bred in China, where they are still kept (and eaten) today. They have black skin and bones and 5 toes instead of the normal 4.

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.)

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.
