Splash Silkie Bantam Chicken

Silkie Chickens are an truly unique and one of a kind breed of chicken originating in Asia. Silkie Chickens are ideal as pets and the hens are especially broody and will raise chicks from other species. 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 have multiple features to qualify them as a fancy breed: Turquoise earlobes, Five toes, Crests, and Feathered feet.

Silkie Bantam Chickens have bluish black skin, beaks, bones, and meat 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.
