I REALLY WANT AN EXTREMELY SHORT LEGGED BANTAMS, MORE SHORTER THAN THIS PAIR, CAN I GET ONE IN THEIR OFFSPRING? IS IT POSSIBLE?
CAN I PRODUCE EXTREMELY SHORT LEGS USING THIS PAIR OF NOT EXTREMELY SHORT LEGS BANTAMS?
I would say it depends on their genes. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible with some selection, I think the cock looks pretty short legged already. But some short legged genes when you bred short legged birds to short legs can be lethal (in the case of Japanese bantams for example). What are those anyway? So far my first two guesses would be free ranged birds or a Kikiriki?

No, they miss the creeper gene.
The gene that makes the legs extra short.
When it has the gene the legs are short. You only want one copy of the gene else it is lethal. The gene is dominant, always visible.
Nobody thinks they have the creeper gene. Keep asking and someone will give you the answer you want but it won't change their genetics. Keep asking the same question hoping someone will answer the they way you want will only make people stop trying to help you. Tom
