According to some books this breed appeared in the 1800s and was not produced for meat or eggs and were really only ornamental poultry. In the Netherlands they were known as the Sabelpoot. They were also used in the creation of the Belgian Barbu d'Uccle. Please note that the Booted Bantam is different to the d'Uccle. They tend to be heavier than the Belgian D'Uccle by a few pounds. In some cases the egg colour is tinted, rather than white also making it different from the d'Uccle, however normally they lay white eggs. Booted bantams are non-beared, however d'Uccles are. Also, d'Uccles are more common than the rare Booted.

Pros: Friendly
Very pretty
Nice to other chickens in the flock
Cons: I can't think of any
This is an excellent chicken breed for all purposes! I can't say much about egg laying because mine hasn't started yet. But, I can say that this is one of my most friendly chickens in my flock. The hens are easy to catch and aren't flighty at all. (at least mine is). This is a great breed if you are looking for a chicken that is going to be willing to sit in your lap for a long time. :)

Pros: Sweetheart, Gorgeous and Small Sized
Cons: Large feet feathers can cause issues
Booted Bantams live up to their name, their "boots" are HUGE! We had to cut our littles ones back so she could walk somewhat normally and forage with the rest in the day. We loved her to bits and she was the most enjoyable bird I've owned and I would never regret getting more. If you don't exactly want this one, try a D'Uccle, which is pretty much a sister breed to the Booted Bantams with all of the same perks but less foot feathers! :)

Cons: NONE
I had a hen to hatch a brood of chicks, and I got twin Booted hens, lily and lillieana. And they were so sweet, i would SO get 1or 2 or 3 or more again. If I were u, I would get some. but both lily and lillieana both died.
But any way, I love this breed!!!!
