Product Overview

 

Silkie is a one-of-a-kind unusual chicken. Hair-like feathers resemble silk threads on top of dark skin. Those unique features made Silkies popular across the globe. They are famously known as "pet chickens" because of their miniature size and friendly nature. Silkies originated in China and are one of the oldest breeds. Even though they are categorized as bantam chickens, Silkies are a little bigger than most bantams. Roosters can weigh 2-3 lbs. Silkies are fair egg layers with an average of 120 eggs per hen, but they are at the top of the broodiness list.

A Silkie hen is the most reliable chicken mother of them all. The most common are white Silkies, but they come in many different colors; these along with many other varieties of chickens for sale are available here at Valley Hatchery.
