Hello chicken keepers!

I couldn’t help but share this video with you - it’s just adorable!

I can’t resist sharing every Silkie video I find with our followers, and I know you can’t get enough of these little fluffballs either!

My Silkie obsession (I have 3 of my own) even extends into our Learning Centre. Here’s some of my favourite reading material as a Silkie lover. What’s yours?

  1. This comprehensive guide to silkies, with everything you need to know about the cuddliest chooks around.
  2. This absolutely heartwarming story about two fluffy friends - Penny the Silkie bantam, and Roo, the two-legged rescue dog. Worth the click for the picture alone!
  3. The top reasons to get Silkie bantams, just in case you needed anything more than their fluffy bums to convince you!

Another thing I’ve discovered about Silkies is that they make incredible mums for hatching your own chicks. You know you want some powder-puffs in your yard!

Feathers Forever,
