I've got a couple of boys that probably need to be removed. I did a quick Google to see if there were any recipes for Silkies but didn't see much. Does anyone here have any cooking suggestions?

The only way I know to cook them is in soup - that's how we've always eaten them. It's generally thought of in Chinese culture as having special medicinal properties (black chicken) so it's usually cooked in a broth like soup with Chinese herbs. I guess you could cook it like you would any normal chook but you do have to get your mind around the whole black looking meat thing...my children (oz bred) think it looks 'off'.

Maybe do a search for 'Black Chicken Recipes' - that's what non-poultry folk call silkies.

Yep, done that as per my original :roll: post........ thats why I posted.........but thanks for the soup idea. I'm told that the taste can be rather gamey so perhaps a game fowl recipe??

I reckon that a slow braise might be a goer - Chinese style. Have a look for recopies for Red Cooked Chicken e.g. http://www.abc.net.au/local/recipes/2008/09/18/2368197.htm?site=hobart

i have cooked silkie meat and it tastes no different from ordinary chicken meat........so you can just cook it in the same way as you would cook a normal chicken :?
