They are very good mommas, cute, fuzzy, docile, and make good chickens for kids. The silkies I have are mainly for looks and for the kids to use for 4-H if they want to.

Silkies have 5 toes, and black skin and purple to mulberry colored combs and wattles. The meat is considered a delicatacy (sp), and they are great broodies and great mothers. And just goofy funny to watch. But I also had a rooster that was psychotic. And they are one of the few true Bantam breeds.
