Here are photos of our Bantam Bearded Silkie Chickens. Please click on a color to see more of our chickens in that color. Silkies make great pets. They are a 'bantam' chicken breed. They have 'silk' instead of feathers and they cannot fly. They have five toes on each foot. They are a very tame breed and will many times follow you around like a puppy. They are usually really good with kids. We have pens set up with each color separately - we do not run our colors together. Additionally we have a black pen, a blue producing pen and a splash pen that are all separate from each other.
