We are so grateful for our Silkie flock as they provide us with everything a chicken can provide! Fluffy pets, broody mommas to grow the flock, beautiful small eggs, and delicious meat for the table. If anyone has photos of their Silkie or Silkie cross meat birds, post them! I love explaining to people about blue chicken meat. Ours are hatchery quality, so the meat is not as dark, but it still is the most tender and flavorful of all our backyard birds. We also cross quite a bit with whatever LF rooster we have over the hens at the moment. Did I mention that the meat is amazing?
