Product Description

Our breeding silkies’ feather colors are blue, black, splash, white and porcelain. Porcelain is a combination of lavender and buff and some of our hens are partially partridge, but we no longer keep pure partridge. Chicks from these hatching eggs can hatch with feathers from any color or combination of the colors we keep. We especially like these chicks because of the fun of the surprise. The chickens are also easily distinguished from each other by their unique colors.

Silkies are a bantam chicken breed, with soft silky plumage. Their feathers are similar to down and wisp around, making them look like balls of fluff. They are incredibly sweet, gentle birds that make a perfect pet for children.

The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot (instead of the usual four). Silkies have feathered feet, and mulberry colored cushion combs (typically only visible on the males, as the female’s combs are smaller and hidden by their crest.) Silkie hens make wonderful mothers and can even adopt baby ducks if given the chance.

Silkies are one of the few ancient chicken breeds we still have around today, originating from Asia prior to the 13th century, truly a heritage breed.
