Blue Splash Silkie HenBlue Silkie and her ChickBlue Silkies were the very first colour of Silkies we bred at Haytor Reach. Over the years we have increased our breeding group and introduced a beautiful splash variety with its black and white mottling over a smokey grey-blue background. The Cockerels are particularly striking in Blue Splash, with a mass of tail feather in  black, white and grey-blue. Our girls have been noted for their stunning heads exhibiting full pom poms and both sexes have the correct turquoise lobes and should be prize winners at poultry shows. We have an excellent laying strain.

Silkies are a very ancient breed found originally in China a thousand years ago. They have fur-like feathering which is unique to the breed and this softness along with a calm and gentle character make them a firm favourite with children.

Blue SilkiesSilkies make fantastic pets for the back garden as they do not fly and can be kept in smaller runs or a poultry ark. They have trusting natures and will eat from your hand. Their unusual feathering does mean a little extra care needs to be taken when choosing their accommodation, they do not dry quickly and therefore some shelter from rain is essential.

Blue SilkiesFor those looking for a broody hen, Silkies are the first choice, often being used as foster mothers for other breeds.

Overall Silkies make a great addition to any back garden, being light on their feet and creating little mess. They are friendly, calm and at times extremely funny. Ideal as children's pets and providing eggs too.
