Silkie Chickens are a highly sought after pet bird because of their down-like feathers. They are soft, cuddly, and super sweet. They are covered in feathers from their heads, down to their toes! They also have unusual black skin and feet, as well as five toes. Silkies are thought to have medicinal qualities in Chinese culture. Silkies are also broody and make great mothers, and are often kept to incubate eggs and care for the chicks. Silkies are a mix of bearded and non-bearded.Average weight: roosters 36 oz, hens 34 oz.
