Pros: Adorable, Docile, Loves attention
Silkies can be such great pets. I had two when I was a child, and I had such a fond memory of them that I just got two for my two year old daughter. They love to just eat out of your hand, and get lots of lap time! These really are such sweet chickens, and great to have around children. The only con I could possibly think of is that they don't have high egg production, and their eggs are quite small. Then again, if a egg layer is what you are looking for then look at a different breed.
