Silkie Bantam Chicken: la gallina glamour!

CURIOSITA’ DAL MONDO ANIMALE – Come potete notare anche una gallina può apparire glamour! E’ il caso della Silkie Bantam Chicken, una razza molto ornamentale di gallina, dalle soffici piume che al tatto ricordano la seta . Ha diverse altre caratteristiche insolite, come il blu scuro della carne e delle ossa, i lobi delle orecchie blu, e cinque dita per ogni piede (i polli ne hanno solo quattro). Le Silkie sono anche note per la loro calma e il temperamento amichevole e sono madri meravigliose, infatti sono in grado di adottare e allevare i piccoli di altre specie di uccelli.

The elegant animal above is a chicken, a Silkie Bantam hen, and a reminder that glamour is far more than simply clothing or perfumes. The Silkie Bantam is known for the extreme softness of its feathers, whose silkiness gives the breed its name. It has many other unusual characteristics, like the blue tint of its meat and bones and having five claws on each foot – their ordinary barnyard cousins have only four. These very special chickens are said to have a particularly sweet disposition and a strong maternal instinct, to the point where they are easily able to adopt and raise the hatchlings of other races of birds.
