Gorgeous blue bearded Silkie bantams make a great choice for anyone seeking a show bird, a broody mother hen, or a backyard pet. Silkies are an extremely calm breed that do well in confinement.

Note that breeding a blue bearded Silkie to another blue Silkie will not produce 100% blue offspring. You will get roughly 50% blues, 25% dark blue/black, and 25% splash Silkies.

See here for all of the color options of silkies that we offer. For Cackle Hatchery® customers who like all our Silkie varieties, we offer a Mixed Silkie Bantam Special. Discover more about Silkies in our Breed Spotlight: Silkie Bantam Chickens. See all color variations of silkies for sale

    I ordered 10 blue silkies, and received 11. Since blue doesn’t breed true I wasn’t expecting all blue, but I got 8 blue and 3 black. One was a dwarf/runt, and a snake got him(smallest target). He was doing quite well until that point, just a lot smaller then the rest. Seems I got 6 roosters and 4 hens(1 black). The black hen has wry tail but otherwise the blacks seem to be nice quality, nice big crests and beards. The blue hens seem pretty good too, I think the roosters are just in their teenage gangly phase. They were all extremely healthy as chicks, and still very healthy. They’re adorable and I’m glad to have silkies again. Blues aren’t easy to find!

    Awesomely Happy

    We opted for my hubby drive to Johnson City, TN on July 12, 2019 to pick up the 5 Blue Silkie Bantams we ordered instead of waiting till they arrived the next day at our local post office. Imagine our delight when we received 7 healthy chicks! They are now 4 weeks old and thriving! They are the sweetest babies in the world and we will be ordering more next year.

    Thank you Cackle Hatchery! Y’all are wonderful!!

    Very cute

    I ordered 10 of the Blue Silkies and 10 of the Splash Silkies. They arrive, 22 total, 1 additional of each in great condition. Four weeks old today and ALL are thriving!

    I LOVE the silkies!

    I was new to chickens last year, and I am very pleased to say that this company has fantastic customer service and birds to chose from. I had gotten a blue Silkie bantam, (cockerel) and he was the sweetest little thing to ever roam this Earth. My only negative thing about this breed is that they are more prone to being attacked by predators if you let your birds free range, because of their size. Although, they do a fantastic job at protecting their ladies and warning them when there’s trouble.

    Very Happy!!

    Picked up my babies this morning. All survived the trip to Maine very nicely. They are all healthy, eating, drinking and cute as a button!!!! Thank you Cackle – very pleased!!

    I had been trying to get silkies for my daughter with no luck local or with 2 other hatcheries. I came upon these little guys and thought we’d give it a chance. There was somewhat of a wait which was fine. They arrived pretty quickly, but unfortunately we did lose one! Luckily Cackle put in an extra. They are so adorable and the color gradient is excellent. We have some on the lighter side and some almost black! They are a joy! Thanks Cackle!

    Very pleased

    Our Blue and Splash Bantams arrived in very good condition with one extra each. These little buggers are the cutest ever. My first experience with bantams or silkies. I was apprehensive that USPS tracking said it would take 3 days. However, it took probably less than 24 hours to CO. I highly recommend customers set up text notifications via the USPS web site which will notify you of your chicks’ progress. This way we had a better idea of when to be available.

    Recommended company.

    All chicks arrived alive and chirping. Ordering and shipping was a smooth process.

    My chicks arrived this morning and all are in fine shape. They are eating and drinking like little dinosaurs!! Thank you for a great shipment.

    Healthy Chicks Arrived

    Just wanted to say “thanks” for sending such vigorous and healthy chicks. I’m a new customer to your hatchery and I’m very pleased. I will be ordering from you again!

    My praise to Cackle Hatchery and their staff

    Good Evening, I just received my order of chicks from Cackle Hatchery today. I want to extend my sincere praise to your company and staff. My chicks arrived healthy and without a single casualty!!! I have ordered from other hatcheries in the past and have waited anxiously for my chicks to arrive only to be disappointed by dead or nearly dead chicks. Your chicks are the best I have ever received from a hatchery. Although, I am experienced enough to be able to tell which breeds are which, I appreciated the fact that your staff took the time to mark similar breeds. Again, thank you to your staff, They won me over as a customer. I will be sure to tell all of my fellow chicken fanciers how impressed I am with Cackle Hatchery.

    Customer Satisfaction

    Recently, I received an order of chicks that I had called in. They arrived the next day! It was so good to see that all strong and healthy. They will be a week old tomorrow. All is going well. I live so far North in New York state that when shipments take 3 or 4 days the birds do not do well. I hope that this speed can be used again when I order. Thank you for healthy birds and getting them here by next day.
