We've been bitten by the silkie chicken bug so we've started a small breeding pen with our new white babies. We started in chickens to have fresh, healthier eggs and meat for ourselves and our dogs...then we found these beauties. Silkies are adorable and sweet chickens that make wonderful pets. Even the roos are sweet.
Sweet silkie mom calling babies to the food...
"Rachel", a 2012 pullet I produced.
Cute silkie bum... and young, comical chicks.
Initial breeding stock came from Geri Godina, from Catdance, Northwoods, and Sassy.
All of my birds are bearded. I cull heavily for type, wings, and light skin - keeping only the best. I can't keep many, so the birds in my breeding pen are exceptional or they go. I usually have chicks and older birds available.
These birds are so much fun! Everyone should have a few!
