The fluffy, flamboyant Black Silkie is a chicken whose meat is prized in some Asian cuisines. david_ipse wanted to know where to buy one of these “bird poodles” to cook at home.

kc72 points out that they’re sold at 99 Ranch, and for $4.99 per pound (with a recent coupon) they’re not a bad deal. grayelf notes that she has also seen Black Silkies featured at a poultry shop on Stockton Street in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
