We have several Bearded Silkie chickens here that came from families that take birds to contests and “show them” for awards or moeny. Silkies are common show birds because they are so fluffy and pretty! They are also very docile and tame. However, if a chick is born with qualities that don’t fit the mold of an award winning bird they are often disposed of. We have several of them here and think they are absolutely beautiful just the way the are! This is rock! He’s a silkie rooster, but he’s more interested in hanging out in the sun and admiring the ladies from afar! He also has the cutest, fluffiest, booty ever!!
