this is a Silkie- a type of chicken. Apparently they make good pets! Great!


Silkie back from ancient China, this chicken has downy feathers, giving it a silky soft coat. Melanine in the chicken is present in the bones and connective tissue, giving the Silkie's meat a blue/black tinge. Will produce around 3 eggs a week, and display a calm temperament, making them great pets.
