Silkies 
Eggs in the incubator 

The Silkie is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk and satin. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot, whereas most chickens only have four. 
It has fluffy as opposed to feathery plumage, dark skin, blue earlobes and five toes to each foot. Due to its docile temperament it makes an excellent broody bird as well as a mother to its own chicks. Owing to their unusual plumage they are not hardy, they suffer from both cold and damp and can go downhill very quickly if not fussed over. They are also susceptible to being bullied by other hens as they do not particularly stand up for themselves. They can lay roughly 100 eggs a year of a medium to small size and cream in colour, however this is often interrupted by them going broody.
Egg size: Small
Temperament: Calm, Friendly
Recognized variety: Bearded Black, Bearded Blue, Bearded Buff

Barnevelders or ‘Barnies’ as they are affectionately known, are relative newcomers to the world of chickens.

That hasn’t held them back though, they have a firm following and rightly so. They are a low maintenance hen with a fun personality and good looks!

Once the darling of the Dutch egg industry, the Barnevelder now finds favor with many small flock keepers as a dual purpose hen.

In this article we are going to discuss the different varieties of Barnevelders, their temperament and of course, their beautiful chocolate colored eggs.

Barneys are a very easygoing bird and they rarely squabble with anyone; even the roosters are known to be calm.

The Barnevelder is a very friendly bird. They are always pleased to see you and will greet you with low key chattiness.

They do like to chat a little but their voice is low and quiet unlike RIR who like to shout!

Barnevelders are active birds they love to free range and excel at it. They can be easily tamed to be pets if you start at an early age and since they are docile, gentle and they are definitely kid friendly.
