  • Silkies are named for their unique fluffy plumage, which feels like silk. They have several unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot (although not all of our silkies will hatch out with five toes). Calm and friendly and the most docile of poultry, they make an ideal pet. Hens are broody and make good mothers. Though they are fair layers themselves, they are commonly used to hatch eggs from other breeds.

    Silkies are only sold in assorted colors, and we do not guarantee any colors in assortments.
