    i recently bought some bantams (just for pets) from atwoods and some of them have feathered feet. i was wondering what kinds of bantams have feathered feet. in hopes of at least narrowing down what kind they may be. i also acquired two white blk tailed jap. bantams they are sooooo adorable.
    thanks,

    Brahmas, Sultans, Sabelpoot, Faverolles, and I guess there are some bantam Marans, but they are quite rare.

    so more updates on the bantys... the tiny jap btw died sadly, but something seemed to be amiss it was not growing or feathering out, so just as well, and the partridge colored one is shaped different than the rest, like her wings are longer and more substanctial(mispelled) than the others, wondering if she might be something else besides cochin, and the black one is getting curly feathers on it's wings, kinda a strange looking fellow, they are almost 4 weeks now, and i have only lost one out of all the chicks i bought, including the ten ameraucana chicks. i bought extra, because your "suppose" to lose some..........guess there's still time..........what is the average percentage of chick loss again? more pics later, when they get more feathered they are at the ugly teen phase right now lol by the way the one is mottled for sure it is soooo pretty!!( will post more pics when i get hubby to do it i am tech impaired lol)[​IMG]
