Paint Silkies, Cuckoo Silkies, Buff Silkies, Black Silkies, Blue Silkies & White Silkies

Magnificent and exotic, the Silkie is a wonderful pet for adults and children alike. Their fur-like feathers are so soft making them cuddly Teddy-Bear-like pets. During the 13th century, Venetian explorer Marco Polo (circa 1254-1324) returned from his travels throughout Asia with stories of the mysterious Silkie. Both China and Japan claim the origin of the Silkie, which was further developed into a Bantam breed by Dutch breeders in the second half of the 20th century.
