Silkies are some of the sweetest and softest chickies available. These are cute little bantam chickies that come in a variety of colors including buff, gray, black, white, red, partridge, blue and splash. We usually always have silkies on hand, because they are favorites of everyone in the family. They are very lovable, and enjoy being held and played with. They make sweet little clicking noises, unlike other breeds of hens and are soothing to listen to. Instead of feathers, they have fur, which adds a lot of cuddleness to them. We have both bearded and non bearded, crested and none. When they are little, it is hard to tell what they will have when older.
Add some silkies to your flock today, and enjoy their sweetness!
Silkies tend to go broody a lot, as they love being mothers. They lay about 100 eggs per year on the small to medium side, cream colored.
