This bantam breed originated in China and is known for its silkied feathers and docile personality. Our parent stock are bred to the Standard of Perfection and have black skin, beards, blue earlobes, walnut combs, fifth toes and feathered feet.
Silkie, satin and showgirl hens lay small to medium sized white eggs and make great broody mamas. Their small size and friendly demeanor make them an excellent choice for families and kids participating in 4H.
We have several different silkie breeding flocks. The first is a show quality flock of blue, black and splash (BBS) bearded silkies. These birds are all directly from Bobbi Porto of Indigo Egg, one of the top breeders in the country. Chicks from this pen can hatch out as silkies or showgirls.
Our second silkie flock consists of all four silkie feather types: bearded silkies, frizzled silkies, and satins (frizzled/smooth). We also have several showgirls (naked neck silkies) in this pen. Our showgirl breeding stock is also directly from Bobbi Porto. Chicks from this flock can hatch out with any of the four feather types and can silkies, satins or showgirls. Silkies in this flock are also blue, black and splash (BBS). We cannot accommodate requests for specific feather types as this is indistinguishable at hatch. However, when placing chick orders, you may specify silkie vs showgirl chicks.
Finally, we have a flock of white silkies and showgirls. Our breeding stock is directly from Shanna Gardener of Magnolia Silkies. Chicks can hatch out as standard silkies or showgirls.
We cannot accommodate all requests for specific colors from our BBS pens. However, please make note of any preferences when you order.
Our show quality BBS and white silkies will not be available until the 2020 season. However, we do currently have hatching eggs available from our silkie, satin and showgirl pen.
