Thanks!

Okay - considering getting some eggs to hatch that will end up with chicks w/ feathered feet - thinking I might go for bantams (so hubby won't worry about fitting in just 1 more chicken wink )

Any good suggestions?

Can't spend much.

Brahmas also come in bantam size.  My light brahmas, though standards, are the sweetest things.  Followed closely by my buffs.

Bantam Salmon Faverolles are adorable.  Hard to come by, but they are out there....

For a first timer I would suggest Silkies or Cochins. They are the tamest and most docile an dlaid back of any feather footed bantam breed, the most of any breed really. You will get very pretty birds in both breeds and you wont be dissappointed in them I am sure. And you can also get Frizzles in both breeds. Frizzled birds are very cool and are very pretty! That would be my suggestion for a first timer.

Cochins or Silkies are both very sweet and both go broody and they come in bantam. You have color varieties in both and they make super pets as well as Cochins laying well. Silkies, however, tend to like to be broody without laying so well. But results do vary.yippiechickie
