Silkie Trivia and Pics

A bit of trivia about Silkie chicken… did you know they can’t fly? They might get a little air under their wings now and then, but they won’t get more than 3 0r 4 feet from their efforts.

More about the Silkie’s temperament and appearance in this video, but I’m a little hesitant to agree with the speaker on how many eggs to expect from this breed.  I think it’s safe to say 100 eggs per year is more likely than 150 to 200. My opinion.
