    OK so I need input just for future reference!! I keep on seeing people say that bad they have yellow feet. Well I have bantam cochins and they all have yellow feet!! Is the no yellow feet breed specific or all chickens?? I got mine from a hatchery and I know they aren't as nice as others out there but I'm wonder more for te future cause I'm sure my girls will want to show chickens later down the road when they are older!! Thanks for the input!

    My Banty Cochins have yellow feet. Kinda cute.

    Yes, Ropo, NEVER trust a car dealer. (I know, I'm married to one)

    Motorcycle chick, I feel for you. My first time was pretty traumatic. A real series of unfortunate events. If I had the time (or the stomach for it) I'd type it all out.

    Yellow feet are the color they are supposed to be. Its only bad if they are not supposed to. Like chickens that call for white skin in the standard of perfection. That's all :)

    Yeah, I could say the same. I won't tell you what went on with the first one. Having nightmares!

    I think I am going to thin out my Bantam Orpington coop. I just really have too many. Do these prices sound right to you?

    Pair (one pullet one cockerel) $20
    Trio (2 pullets 1 cockerel) $35

    Quad (3 pullets 1 cockerel) $50

    Thanks for your input I thought they were ok but I just didn't know.. Just have been reading so much and didn't know if they were supposed to have yellow feet or if that was a no no!!

    How many times have you seen a raccoon or weasel near the chickens during the day? My neighbor just said that she lost 4 chickens around noon yesterday. She also told me not to worry (????).
    I am lost as to how my girls are safe (so far!). Very few references say that weasels are a threat to adults, and all have said they hunt at night.
    So, who has had a problem before?
