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.
