Pilkie Bantam Chicken

Pilkie Bantam Chickens are a hybrid bird with Silkie and Pekin bantam parentage.  Pilkies display different characteristics from each parent bird and can come out quite different from each other so no batch is the same.  They can look like Pekins but with the Silkie crest like the one pictured or they an look like Silkies but with Pekin feet and every combination in-between.  

Like their parent's, Pilkie Bantams can get extremely broody on their eggs so shouldn't be allowed to sit on unfertilised eggs.

 

Pilkies are friendly curious birds and make great additions to any flock.
