Size & weight: These are rather petite birds, with hens weighing about 3 pounds and roosters approximately 4 pounds.
Temperament: Silkies are probably best known for their affectionate and gentle dispositions, making them ideal pets. Always ready to cuddle up with their owners and happy to sit in your lap, you won’t find a much sweeter breed of chicken. Silkie hens are also famous for their constant desire to go broody and raise a batch of chicks. Many chicken breeders keep a small flock of Silkies purely to use them for their mothering tendencies.
Egg production: Silkies average about 100 small and light colored eggs per year.
