Blue Silkies

Blue Silkies hen and rooster
“Silkies may be described as a compromise between the large Fowls and the Bantams; the Blues, like the Whites and the Blacks, are great favourites among lady fanciers. The plumage consists of fluffy feathers resembling silk or hair. Both sexes have crests, thoses of the male birds being like silky manes, while those of the females are globe-shaped, somewhat resembling powder-puffs. The face of the Blue Silky is a mulberry colour, and the toes are very fine. The cocks weigh about 3 pounds and the hens about 2 pounds. The latter make ideal mothers, and they are good layers of either tinted or white eggs according to the strain”
