Silkie

Silkie hatching eggs

Silkies are somewhat of an unusual breed. They have blackish blue flesh and bones, earlobes and 5 toes instead of 4.

Marco Polo wrote about Silkie chickens during his travels in the 13th century. In 1599 Ulisse Aldrovandi, a naturalist at the University of Bologna in Italy wrote of “wool-bearing chickens” and chickens “clothed with hair like that of a black cat.”

Silkies are one of two varieties, bearded and non-bearded. Bearded Silkies have an extra muff of feathers under the beak area that covers the earlobes.

Some Asian countries consider meat from Silkies a delicacy. It is often found in Chinese, Japanese, Cambodian, and Korean cuisine.
