The silkie chicken, sometimes improperly spelled as “silky” is a white fluffy breed of chicken with some very unusual characteristics. For one, under all of that fluffy white plumage this breed has blue skin. With exposed blue earlobes and five toes – as opposed to the four toes on other breeds of chickens.
A word of caution – these birds cannot see 100%, though their eyes are fully functional due to the feathers in front of their eyes.
We love our silkies the add style to the chicken yard.
Hope you have a nice day!
