    Hi I am looking to possibly add a new member to my small flock and I am thinking about Bantam. What is the the best layer breed with no feet feathers and come with a gender? Thanks for the help.

    Why do you want featherless feet?Also I wouldn’t add just one,escpecially with them being unique and smaller in size

    Few bantams are sexed. Plymouth Rocks, Easter Eggers, and Leghorns all come in bantam, and those are probably going to be the best layer bantams.

    For friendly bantams, you want Silkies, Old English Game Bantams, Brahma Bantams, Japanese bantams, Seramas, Easter Egger bantams, Cochin bantams, and D'uccles.

    I don't want feathered legs because they obtain mostiore and I have another young puller who I would see if she's adopt the chick.
