    Yes! In some cultures they are viewed as a delicacy with therapeutic properties.

    They are chicken so taste like chicken. There was some study I read a while ago saying that the dark chickens were healthier. I'm going to be having silkie noodle soup here soon as one of my boys keeps threatening me and has started stalking. The brat has been aggressive since he was day old.

    Yes, the Chinese especially are fond of Silkie Soup. They claim all kinds of health benefits from it. Do a search and I'm sure some recipes will show up.
