The American Bantam Association accepts six standard colours for silkies: black, blue, buff, white, partridge and grey.
Araucana chickens sometimes do not tolerate other breeds of chickens, or vise versa, however, they usually are a fine breed to mix in with other chickens.
Their comb is single and medium to large in size, in the females it often lops over a bit.
Silkie chickens are considered excellent mothers.
They are reproductively mature by their third year when they are around 1.
The Campine chickens are a fairly small, closely feathered breed with solid coloured hackles and barred bodies.
