White Silkie Bantam Chicken

Silkie Chickens are a 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. While most chicken breeds grow out of their soft and adorable baby chick fur, the Silkie Chickens retain this trait throughout their lives, giving them a mass appeal among pet chicken owners.

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.

JUST EXCELLENT! August 17, 2016
Reviewer: sandra duncan from North Bend, OR United States  
I will type this once because it reflects how I feel about my white, black, and blue silkies!  I received 17 well and chirpy babies that were shipped/born on wed and I received 6am Sat and all were amazingly chipper and well!  I already have a few favorites: Zorro, Peeps, Aretha and Debbie.  Only other experience with chickens were one Astrolorp and one Easter Egger which are 2 months old already in coop. Love the customer service and how they dealt with me (an expectant mother).  Unfortunately, I am an Urban dweller and already have more than the 10 chickens we are allowed, but, so what!!!  I just love chickens and the Bantams are definitely my favorite!  I even purchased 3 more yesterday from the local farm supply...a bantam Polish and 2 Porcelain Silkies!  Let's see, that comes up to 22 chickens!  I am so in enamored with these chicks!!!

major shipping issue. July 18, 2016
Reviewer: James Anderson from Norman, OK United States  
I ordered 15 silkie bantam chicks. Upon arrival noticed 6 of the 17 chicks we're dead. Also in the box with the chicks was a moisture absorbent packet that weighed over 12 ounces, three quarters of a pound Loosely placed in the Box. This packet Crushed and smothered the chicks. One day later another chick  died. I called  efoul and notified them and they credited me for four of the chicks. This must have been a mistake putting that packet in the Box. My first shipment with him didn't have one.
