White bearded Silkie bantam chickens (Exhibition Type) where the first Silkie variety admitted to the American Standard of Perfection, in 1874. White Silkies are a striking combination of black skin and fluffy white feathers, set off with a deep mulberry comb and wattles.

For a chicken that excels at exhibition, you can’t beat our show quality white bearded Silkie. The tame nature of these bantams also makes them outstanding as backyard pets. Silkies are typically quite broody. So if you need help raising chicks of any other breed, white Silkie bantams can handle the job.

For customers who love all five varieties of Cackle Hatchery® Silkies, we offer a Mixed Silkie Bantam Special. For more information about Silkies, see our Breed Spotlight: Silkie Bantam Chickens. See all color variations of silkies for sale

  2. Rosemarie caires

    I ordered 28 white sikkies and received 30. All except one survived the trip to Maui Hawaii. They were lively because they were shipped so well. I was very impressed with the whole process at Cackle. My chicks are now running around in their little group and are absolutely beautiful. They are very fluffy and tame. Everyone falls in love with them. Thank you Cackle for providing me with these beautiful chicks. Next year I might order another color!

    So Pleased

    I am so pleased with my order from Cackle! I ordered 5 white silkie bantams received 6 healthy happy chicks in May of this year. Only ended up with 2 hens, I am not allowed to have roosters where I live so I only kept the 2 girls and they are the best! Super sweet and so fluffy! They started laying eggs at 5 months old and lay an egg each almost every day. I just love them so much. I will be back for more

    In Love…

    SO happy to receive my babies today! My white Silkies arrived. I ordered 5 and they sent me 6 which was good because one didn’t make the trip. The ones that did are in great condition eating, drinking and happy just an hour after being in their new home.

    First time customer

    This was my first time ordering from Cackle Hatchery. There was good communication from the time i ordered to the time of delivery. All of my chicks arrived happy and healthy and still are two days later. I will definitely be ordering from here again.

    Happy healthy babies

    This was our first time ordering our chicks online. We got the hatchery special 15 silkies and could not be more pleased with our order. We received 18 healthy happy chicks! The packaging is impressive and I was sure the 2 day journey not all would make it but after 24 hours all are still doing just as well. The care instructions included are a great touch along with the bonus stickers for the kids. We defiantly recommend crackle for future orders!

    10 White Silkies

    Order shipped on Monday and the 10 white silkies arrived in great shape first thing Wednesday morning in South Florida. We had a bit of a cold snap this week and I was concerned about the chicks getting chilled, but Cackle hatchery packed them nicely in a well insulated box with a heat pad and the chicks were warm and content in their journey south. They even through in a couple extras, very pleased with the chicks and the professional service.

  12. Mr Clean

    Amazing birds

    Picked up my white silkies at the hatchery today. The staff at Cackle is very friendly and helpful. From Cheryl in the ordering department to the young lady that waited on me in the store. The chicks made the 4 hour drive home in good shape. All chicks healthy and what I expected from the breed. I order 30 total chicks of two different breeds and I am pretty sure sure there were 37 chicks in the box. To hard to count because they are so peppy and energetic. No lethargic chicks and no off colored chicks. Looks like I have a new hatchery.

    I bought Silkies last summer. Bought 5 and 6 came. It was our first time owning chickens. My daughter who just turned 9 loves these chickens!! They all survived. And they have stole her heart. There ended up being 1 rooster and he chases her, pecks her, and bites her pants and she laughs every step of the way. They are adorable. The girls are very sweet. She is begging me to order more!! She is not an animal lover but she loves her chickens!!

  16. Silkie lover


    We ordered 10 silkie chicks and very happy to receive 11! We lost two to predators but all were alive and well when they arrived from Cackel. I definitely suggest cackle!

  17. David Nevada April 2018


    All of my Silkies arrived today. It took three days they are all alive and healthy plus they put in two extras! What a great company and great customer service. Thank you I have very happy with how everything went. I highly recommend Cackle Hatchery.

    Thank You

    A huge thanks for my bantam chickens. All 25 plus the extras sent arrived doing well, and here we are three weeks later and all chicks are still going strong. I have purchased chickens from two or three different local places before and lost some here and there, so I am very impressed with how they all are doing. I will definitely recommend your hatchery to my poultry friends, and plan to order from you again when we’re ready for more

    Just wanted to update you on our week old 15 babies (5 Blue Polish, 5 White Silkies and 5 Easter Eggers). They are all healthy and doing great!

  26. Tom North Carolina May 2010

    Thank You

    I placed a order for 3 African Geese 25 sultans and 10 silkies and received them as healthy and happy as they could be. I am once again a very pleased customer. I put Cackle Hatchery before all others. You have the best price, best service and the best quality. I look forward to my next order, just not sure when but there will be another. Thank you for the extras, this goes to show just how much you care. Thanks 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.

    Cackle Hatchery

    I just wanted to say thank you. I have always been very happy with the poultry I have received from you. I also want to thank you for going through the trouble to cancel my order. I have been ill and only yesterday learn it was rather serious. I hope it will be okay to place orders again with you in the future. I do hope to support your business again in the future by placing order and continuing making people happy locally and meeting new friends by providing breeds that aren’t available locally. Thanks, and good wishes to all at Cackle.

    I am anxiously awaiting my chicks. I am so excited. It is my first time to have backyard chickens. I researched many hatcheries and found yours online. I was impressed and very much enjoyed your tutorial of the family business and history of the company. I also liked the videos of the different chicks and information given about the different varieties. I found that very helpful when choosing which varieties I wanted and would be best for us.
