Silkie Chicken - 1.5 to 2 Lb. Each. The Black Chicken, or Silkie Chicken, is commonly used to brew tonic soups. Especially popular for use during pregnancy or confinement.

Silkies owe their unusual black color to fibromelanosis, a rare genetic mutation of hyperpigmentation believed to have first arisen in China. Their Mandarin name, “wu gu ji,” means “dark-boned chicken;” the name silkie comes from their fluffy plumage which, lacking barbicels, looks and feels like fur. Silkies have five toes, one more than other chicken breeds.
