Valley Hatchery is pleased to offer our high quality White Silkie Bantam Chickens. These ornamental birds are perfect for anyone looking to add some striking beauty to their flock. White Silkies are a unique combination of black skin and fluffy white feathers, set off by deep mulberry combs and wattles.
White bearded Silkie Bantam Chickens (Exhibition Type) were the first Silkie variety admitted to the American Standard of Perfection, in 1874. Since then, they have been a popular choice for exhibition and as backyard pets. They are known for their calm, docile personalities and 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 American Poultry Association. White Silkies are shown in the Feather Legged Bantam Class and are often used for exhibition.
As with other Silkie varieties, White 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 White 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 White Silkies can have beards, adding to their unique and charming appearance.
