Welcome to Valley Hatchery, where we are proud to offer our stunning Splash Silkie Bantam Chickens. These ornamental birds are a show-stopper with their beautiful white or pale blue plumage and irregular patches of black or dark blue color. The Splash Silkie variety was admitted to the American Poultry Association Standard in 2000, making it the most recent Silkie variety to be recognized.
In addition to their striking appearance, Splash Silkie Bantams are also known for their calm and docile personalities, making them great pets. They are reliable egg-layers, producing a good number of small, tinted eggs. Roosters generally weigh in at 36oz, while hens are slightly smaller at 32oz. The breed originated in Asia and is officially recognized by the APA. Splash Silkies are shown in the Feather Legged Bantam Class and are often used for exhibition.
As with other Silkie varieties, Splash Silkie Bantams are known for their strong maternal instincts and tend to go broody, making them excellent choices for anyone looking to hatch their own chicks. And as an added bonus, our Splash Silkie Bantams are also of the bearded variety, with fluffy feather muffs that cover their earlobes and flow down below their beak. Both male and female Splash Silkies can have beards, adding to their unique and charming appearance.
