Silkie Silkie Silkie

Alabama Silkies. Silkie Silkie Silkie The Silkie is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot. They are often exhibited in poultry shows appearing in many colors, and types. We have chosen the bearded and non bearded breeds in many colors and types to share with the world.

Bearded Silkies are considered a light breed of chicken (approx 1.5kg to 2 kg) and arrived from China. They do lay several different colored eggs and can be expected to produce between 100 to 120 before becoming broody. The hens are legendary for their brooding and mothering instincts and stories abound of silkie hens hatching and caring for other breeds of chickens, ducks and geese, as well as their own chicks. Many Silkie owners believe that they are the best natural incubator you can use.
