They dont have much meat on them but they taste like any other chicken. I butcher silkies and eat thoes in a special herb soup. Thoes black skin banties are 8 dollars for a bird that is about 8 ounces.

I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png

I think the dark skin and bones would weird me out.
Plus I agree with Southern28chick. They're too cute to eat!

You can eat anything, it will just take more little bantys to fill you up.

The dark skin in asian culture is medicinal and studies have shown it especially high in this one chemical compared to other chickens which is possibly a reason they are used in preventive medicinal treatments of stuff western medicine often uses to try to treat symptoms.
