Silkies are quite an unusual miniature chicken! They have silky soft feathers similar to down. They are also very friendly and make a great pet bird. These cuddly black feathered chickens also have black skin and feet, as well as five toes, making them unusual in that area as well. Silkies lay peewee sized cream colored eggs and are known for their broodiness. Silkies are a mix of bearded and non-bearded.
Average weight: roosters 36 oz, hens 32 oz.
Silkies are sold as straight run only.
