Silkies are the Chihuahuas of chickens - a lot of cluck and no peck! These docile bantams (small birds) are more pet than poultry. Discovered by Marco Polo in China, they actually have black skin under a covering of shimmering white feathers. Although they are not known as great layers, they are known for being very broody (sitting on eggs).
