My Growing Silkie Chickens

My beautiful, fluffy Silkie chickens are thriving here at my Bedford, New York farm.

As some of you may know, earlier this year I incubated and hatched 11 Silkies. They joined four adolescent Silkies in a coop I designated just for them right outside my stable. The Silkie, also known as the Silky or Chinese silk chicken, is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy, satin-like plumage. This breed is very calm and friendly - everyone at the farm loves to stop by their enclosure and visit with them. The youngest are now about four months old and doing excellently.

Here are the latest photos, enjoy.
