Of all the ornamental chicken breeds, the Silkie Bantam is the most popular and most loved. They're the lap dog of the chicken world, complete with hair-like plumage and an incredibly sweet temperament. They have black skin and bones and 5 toes instead of the normal 4. In addition, Silkie hens make wonderful mothers and are even known to adopt baby ducks if given the chance!
