Buff Silkie Chicken

Silkie Chickens are unique and fascinating Asiatic bantam chicken breed. Silkie Chickens are ideal as pets and their fluffy fur like feathers give them a mass appeal to backyard pet chicken owners. Of all Bantam Chicken breeds, the Silkie is by far one of the most popular and has even been referred to as the "lap dog" of chickens. They are considered a fancy bantam breed and have unique qualities such as blue ear lobes, five toes, feathered feet, and a crest.

Silkie Bantam Chickens have bluish black skin, beaks, bones, and mean that are a result of a melanotic gene. They also have an abundance of silky soft feathers. Silkie Chickens are not only extremely soft and adorable, but they are also quite entertaining to watch in a flock. They have extremely endearing personalities and can truly make an excellent and lovable pet. In the far east where the Silkie Chicken originated, they are still raised as pets and eaten as well. Silkie Chickens are recognized to have both bearded and non-bearded varieties. When you order our Silkie Chickens you will receive a mix of both.

The Silkie is an ancient breed and the first western account of the existence of this unique and fascinating soft feathered breed comes from Marco Polo in his travels during the thirteenth century. This cute breed and its silky soft feathers makes an ideal pet and can be quite useful in sitting on eggs of other chicken or duck breeds.

Good Chicks all live when arrived March 8, 2016
Reviewer: Rita Pizarro from Laveen , AZ United States  
Some were really really small and didn't make it, also some of the toes were oink, I thought silkies all had black skin? Some pasty butts.
