Silkies are a popular choice for backyard chickens. They are very quiet and do not require a lot of space. This makes them a good choice for those who have limited space. They are also good for children. They are also great for 4-H show birds. They are also very docile and will do well in an apartment.
Although silkies are quiet backyard chickens, you need to be prepared for them to crow occasionally. Urban roosters, for example, crow to show who’s in charge. If you have a fenced-in yard, the sound of roosters will deflect on the fence.
Silkies are good mothers. Even though they may not lay many eggs, they will provide a steady supply of healthy eggs. Silkies are also excellent incubators, so they are great if you’re trying to raise other chickens. Silkies are also great companions and will give you a few eggs for the care they give. The eggs produced by Silkies are not as large as the ISA Brown’s, but they are just as nutritious.
Silkies are a great starter chicken and are great for those with small yards. Their friendly personalities and social nature will make them a great addition to any flock. They are also excellent mothers and will sit on a less maternal chicken’s egg during hatching, making them a great choice for backyard chicken owners with lots of babies.
