    I have rir mix game old english bantams and japenese bantams wich of these would be the best to breed ???[​IMG]
     

  2. Japanese bantams are probably worth the most, but the smaller the chicken, the more fragile the chick.

  4. usually deformed feet doesn't have to do with genetics as much as incubation, and the flooring of the brooder. but there could be a chance of deformed feet being passed on, but not to all the chicks, or even any of them. good luck!
