The Silkie fowl is one of the marvels of the Poultry world. Instead of having feathers it is covered in a woolly or silky type of feather; moreover, its legs have feathers down one side, the face is mulberry color, and to top if all off, it possesses a crest and in some cases a beard.  This book traces the history of the breed, which is very ancient, and shows how it has changed over the last 100 years. It also covers the management of the breed and shows how it can be utilized as a broody hen for which it is famed.
