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.
