The Black Silkie Bantam is a gorgeous variety of the Silkie Bantam breed, miniature chickens that originated in China and Japan. Silkie Bantam chickens are an Asiatic, feather-footed breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy, hair-like feathers.

They have beards, muffs and a crest of fluff on top of their head. They have walnut combs, five toes on each foot and feathers on their legs and feet. Adults have black plumage and noticeable blue ear lobes. Females are very broody, great setters and make great mothers.
