Black Silkie Chicken

Both China and Japan claim the origin of these unique bantams and historians have traced them back to Marco Polo. Their black skin and feathers that feel much like hair make them one of our most unusual varieties of chickens. Our Silkies come both bearded and non-bearded and are tremendous setters on all types of eggs. They are small bundles of all black hair-like feathers with a mulberry colored comb, face, and wattles. The ear lobes are a light blue turquoise and the skin is dark bluish/black.

The Black Silkie Chicken breed has so much more to offer than just beautiful black plumage, a cheerful demeanor, and superb maternal instincts.

One color variation of the lovely Silkie that is acceptable by the American Poultry Association and other show-holding organizations is the black Silkie.

The fluffy black feathers on the black Silkie hen and rooster, which should have a green shine especially in the sunlight, are distinctive features of the breed. The wattles, comb, and face should all be a deep mulberry color that is almost black.
