  Silkie feathers are unique because they lack the barbicels that hold a normal feather together, so a Silkie feather resembles hair.Silkies have a crest on the head,and feathered legs and feet.Because of their feathering,Silkies do not fly.Silkies have dark skin and bones.Silkies also have 5 toes on their feet. 

Silkies are generally sweet-tempered, even the cockerels are usually respectful and non-aggressive towards humans.Silkie hens are wonderful and make a great choice for children.Silkie hens are legendary for their brooding and mothering hatching and caring for other breeds of chickens,ducks & geese as well as their own chicks.A silkie hen is never as happy as when she is sitting on a clutch of eggs,even if they're not her own!
