Sablepoot bantams?????????? - Page 2
Well, I'm in Southeast Louisiana and someone sold me a rooster and 5 hens of supposed Mille Fleur D'uccles, but now that I know a bit more about the breed, it appears what I have are Sable points, or Booted Bantams. They are cute little birds to say the least and not too much different from D'uccles. I believe they are a bit larger than D'uccles and do not have the beard and muff. Also, the D'uccles seem to have a more upright body carriage similar to Serama or Japs.
The one that I have is not very loud. He doesn't crow nearly as much as my OEG bantams and he seems pretty laid back. As with any bantam breed, the crow is not so much loud as it is a high pitch. But this one is not too bad.
I have a Porcelain Sablepoot Bantam hen her name is Luna. I didn't know what she was because I asked the lady at the feed store for 3 silkie and got 1 Buff Silkie Bantam, 1 Black Cochin Bantam and Luna. I just figured out what she was by doing research through websites. She is calm, sweet, hasn't started laying yet and makes little light sounds different from the rest of my 7 other hens. I have 7 types of chickens total out of my eight. [IMG]
