    We recently purchased some chicks from tractor supply from the bantams bin. I was sad they didn't have silkies but picked up 2 feather legged cuties. I was hoping I could get help on the breed.

    P.s. I was able to get 4 silkies yesterday :Dan. There was a whole bin full of them!

    Common feather legged bantams are cochins and D'uccles, if the legs are just fluffy I'd think cochin, if it is getting long, developed vulture hocks and toe feathers, D'uccle or even sablepoot. Maybe try a picture of the chick standing naturally. Congrats on getting some chicks!

    Welcome! Ask what hatchery they use, and look online, or call the hatchery to find out what bantam breeds they carry. Then there's feathersite for photos of chicks, and the fun search. Mary
