Who's the daddy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My chicks started hatching yesterday and so far all the ones hatched have feathered leg. My big rooster who is just a mix is obviously not the dad as he does not have feathered legs. But I also have some sort of bantam with feathered legs and feet and a silki. Is there any way for me to tell which one is the dad? The silki is at the bottum of the risen pole and I have never actually seen him breed any body. Is it possible my bantam is the only one fertaizing eggs?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
