Silkies are a popular pick for pet chickens, due to their friendly disposition and unique downy appearance.  Other unique features include their black skin, blue earlobes, and extra toe.  Silkies make excellent mothers, and will lay 2 - 4 white to cream colored eggs per week.  Because they're a bantam breed, silkies can't be sexed at the hatchery.
