White Silkie Broiler, also known as Taihe chickens, Black Meat Chickens, or Silkies Chickens, are a popular meat bird in the Asian Market. Highly sought after for their gourmet dark meat, skin, and bones, these meat birds are the perfect option to fill a growing trend. Besides the skin and meat, Silkie Broilers will NOT live up the feathering expectations of a silkie. They are raised solely for the purpose of meat production. They will also need extra protection from the elements over the winter.
Silkies are very friendly, extremely docile chickens that will make outstanding pets! They are a quiet chicken that doesn’t fly very well due to the nature of their feathers. While this kind of stinks for the chicken, it’s nice for you since the unique feathers make the chicken very soft, cuddly, and pretty to look at. These are non-bearded Silkies (meaning the wattles below the beak are exposed) and only come in white.
An ancient breed of chicken, the Bantam Silkie is an unusual variety of chicken. The most unusual feature is the texture of their feathers which is almost fur-like in appearance and soft to the touch like hair.
Bantam Silkies are also known for their gentle nature and nurturing toward their chicks. Because of this they are easily tamed and make excellent pets. They are dedicated setters of their own or even other eggs. They lay between 90 and 120 eggs per year.
Bantam Silkie Chickens can often be observed cleaning and preening their feathers, often spending hours placing each individual feather in place.
