    Got some bantams from tsc.
    5 toes feathered legs black skin. Believe silkies? Just these don't have near the feathers as my others.

    They look like poorly bred silkies. In the last few years there seems to be quite a few that have sparse leg feathers and they end up being pretty big as adults.

    Should be interesting to see how they turn out.

    Yeah I have some silkies I got from a local hatcher/breeder and they are good looking. These have the silkie feathers. But their legs have just a few feathers

    Just another reason I look but don't buy from the local Tractor supply. I haven't had good results buying from them in the past.

    Maybe silkie crosses I do see some feathers on their legs. Hoping they turn out lovely for you.

    TSC gets their chicks from hatcherys so they're full blood and you will have to wait to see what breed.
