Black and Paint Silkies
The partridge silkie is one of the newer varieties to be accepted into the American Poultry Association. The partridge silkie is one of the most beautiful varieties of silkie in my opinion. I like the color contrast in there feathering. They also make great pets or backyard flock chickens. The silkie lays pretty consitantly all year. They have curious personality and are goofy chickens we like to keep around.
