CHICKS VARY IN COLOUR (Contact us to enquire)
Silkie Bantam is one of the most popular and beloved chicken breeds, and certainly one of the most entertaining to watch. Complete with hair-like plumage and incredibly sweet temperament that would make the perfect children's pet. 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, and are even known to adopt baby ducks if given the chance!
