“How about having a bowl of steamy hot nutritious Silkie (black chicken) tonic soup for tonight’s dinner?”
Silkie, or another name which is more commonly known as, black chicken. Black chicken is often used to cook in soup with Chinese herbs as it claims to be more nutritious (higer in dietary minerals) and less fat content. Silkie is whole black from its skin to even the bones. The meat is more greyish colour. Basically, beside the colour and invisible high values of nutrients, the taste and texture of meat has no much difference, to me. However, some say that the meat is not just leaner, but also softer.
