Golden Silkie

      Silkie Bantam is one of the most popular and beloved, and certainly one of the most entertaining to watch. They're the lap kitty of the chicken world, complete with hair-like plumage and an incredibly sweet temperament. We have heard it said that Silkies are like a "flock" of kittens... but unlike your other pets, your chickens can actually provide your breakfast! Silkies originated in the Far East, where they are still kept (and eaten) today. They have black skin and bones and 5 toes instead of the normal 4. In addition, Silkie hens make wonderful brooders and mothers. which are also called silkie bantams, are small chickens that are primarily known for their fluffy, almost furred appearance. They are a popular ornamental chicken, but due to their unique feather structure, they also need special care. Silkies are known for their docile temperaments as well as their soft feathers. Silkies are a friendly breed who is very easy to train to eat out of your hand. Silkie hens are one of the most famous brooders; making them a great choice as foster mothers should you ever need a flock of chicks taken care of.
