I’m A Spoodle – Silkie Chicken

Silkie Chickens are one of the oldest of the rare breeds of poultry. It is said that Marco Polo wrote about seeing Silkies in the Orient in 1200 A.D. during his travels. Silkies are very unusual looking chickens. Their feathers are missing the barbules that hold them into the traditional rigid feather. Their feathers appear to look like hair, they also have black skin, bones, five toes and feathers on their feet, mulberry colored walnut shaped combs, light turquoise almost iridescent looking earlobes all combine to make Silkies one of the most unusual breeds of poultry. Silkies are one of the most docile, sweet tempered chicken breeds. Silkies great functionality are their ability to sit, and sit they will. Most domestic breeds of poultry have had all their mothering skills breed out of them in the process of improving meat or egg production.
