Hi this may be a dumb question, so please bear with me. I was looking at the images on google after I typed in silkie chicken, and I saw a pic of a plate with what looked like a tiny black chicken body on it. This got me to wonder, silkies may be some kind of a culinary delicacy, but is anyone on here raising them strictly to eat? They just seem so small and fluffy and to me, worth a bit more alive. Not to say that they aren't probably delicious. I don't have any chickens right now, but I am getting some chicks in Thursday.
