SILKIE CHICKENS

Fluffy Little Pets

The Silkie is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk and satin. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot, whereas most chickens only have four.

GREAT WITH CHILDREN

This is a docile and friendly chicken breed. They really enjoy interacting with humans and are a pushover for lap time, where they frequently have a nap. It is a lovely bird to have for children since their feathers feel more like fur and lends itself to stroking. Silkies just love being carried around or having cuddles.

A SIGHT TO SEE

One of the most impressive things about the Silkie chicken is their thick, extremely fluffy feathers that make them look like a small, round furball Their feathers cover their heads, and sometimes hide their eyes, although they seem to see just fine through those thick feathers.
