Get to Know the Attractive, Sweet Silkie

If you’re thinking of hatching your own Silkies, you might be wondering what the result will be after all the hatching excitement is over. The good news is that once the last Silkie chick has hatched, the fun is just beginning. These adorable little chickens are prized for their show quality, but you’ll also enjoy their companionship, amusement…and eggs.

“Kittens of the Barnyard”

Silkies are renowned for their temperaments. They’re docile and interactive, often called the “kitten of the barnyard” or the “poodles of the chicken world.” This, coupled with their small size (8 to 14 inches tall, 3 to 4 pounds), can make them targets for bigger, more aggressive chickens—so keep that in mind when adding them to your flock.

A Colorful, Ancient Breed

Derived from an age-old Chinese breed, Silkies come in blue, black, gray, white, buff, partridge and splash. Another unique feature is their coloring under all that soft plumage. Their earlobes are blue and their skin is black. Even their bones are black! Silkies’ feet are either yellow or black, and have five toes—as opposed to the typical four that other chickens have.

Egg Laying, Brooding, and Mothering

Now let’s talk eggs. Silkies only lay about 3 small to medium eggs per week, so they’re not notable in that area. They do, however, excel in incubating eggs. Their strong brooding instinct adds value to barnyards since they’ll sit on eggs that don’t even belong to them.  And once those eggs are hatched, they make great mothers, too.

Our Silkie Hatching Eggs Guarantee

We guarantee that your Silkie hatching eggs will arrive intact. When you open the box, inspect the eggs carefully. If any are cracked or broken, contact us immediately. We will replace any that have been damaged.

Now for hatchability. We cannot guarantee that every Silkie egg will hatch. Even under perfect incubation conditions, only 80-85% of fertilized eggs will hatch. Add to that fluctuating temperatures, potential rough handling in shipment…and you can expect a percentage a bit lower than that. For these reasons, we cannot guarantee any particular hatching rate.

Order Your Silkie Hatching Eggs From Us Today

Prices in the order form are by the dozen. Ship dates vary, so we ask that you contact our Silkie hatchery for availability. Your Silkie hatching eggs will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail, painstakingly packaged so they arrive intact and ready for incubation.

When you add Silkie chickens to your backyard or farmyard, we can assure you it will never be the same. These fluffy little birds are not only sweet and docile, they make unique conversation pieces. And when you hatch them yourself, you can take great pride in having known them from the very start.
