The best type of chicken to be, or to see, or to just know that it exists

If you ever have to be a chicken, which could happen one day, and you are given the choice of chicken breed then you should most definitely pick the Silkie Chicken.

Just so silky

Here’s another picture just in case you don’t quite believe what you’re seeing here.


These guys look like a 70s band.

These chaps apparently make excellent pets because they are so friendly. They also have black bones and blue ear lobes… that is super weird.

And of course they are named after the silky soft feeling of their feathers.

Is there a better chicken in existence?

Honestly, the google image search of ‘Silkie chicken’ is an absolute joy.
