    I have a black chick that is starting to grow feathers on its legs, does that mean he is a bantam?
    I have no idea what breed he/she is. Also, is it true that the chicks who are the biggest are going to be roosters?

    Thanks everybody!:)

    Both of these things aren't necessarily true. Feathered feet is a sign of breed, not necessarily bantam or standard. You can get a picture of it and ask here

    Bigger chicks doesn't mean they'll be boys either. You can get pics and ask at the same link.

    Best wishes:)
