  Or D'uccles, especially if their feet look like big clodhoppers covered in feathers.  Come to think of it, as adults, their heavily feathered feet still look large.

I bought 6 Rhode Island Reds but one died 4 days later and she was my favorite she was beautiful she'd let you hold her all day long and would jump in my hand as soon as opened the pen then I got three Bantam's they have black feathery legs. What type are they?

I'm a first time chick mom and i bought 4 chicks from TSC in the "Bantam" bin... I asked the man handling them if he had any silkies, he told me they are usually the first to go and he only had a few left... I really had my heart set on a white silkie and they only had one left. So I got her and I let my husband pick three more. They all have feathered feet, so I'm assuming I got silkies. I'm new to the bantam world, as a child I grew up on a chicken farm full of Rhode Island Reds, Plymouths and Orphingtons. So I sure hope their silkies because they look like any other chick besides the feathered feet... either way I've bonded with them and wouldn't change anything.

Correction!!!!!

The man who told me had silkies and it turns out that out of the four I payed for I only got one silkie and three mixed breeds.

The silkie is puffy and has 5 toes...
The other three are different looking and have four toes...
I returned my other three and went to another establishment to buy legitimate silky chicks....

The bantams we got last year from TSC were 1 old english game hen, 2 bantam cochins, and a blue silkie. Love them all!
