Silkie chickens are highly sought after for their soft, down-like feathers and super sweet personalities. Silkies are also well-known for their broodiness and make excellent mothers. The Cuckoo coloring is a barred pattern. Silkies are unique because they have black skin, their feathers lack barbicels, and they have 5 toes. Many people choose to keep Silkies because they are so friendly and make wonderful pets! Silkies lay 2-4 cream-colored eggs per week. Meyer Hatchery’s Silkies may or may not be bearded.
