    I bought some bantams form TSC but not sure what kind they are. What kind does TSC normally sell? They all have feathered feet and are yellow and redish brown now. They have black feet and four and half toes with black beaks. I dontk know how to upload a pic of them. What are they?

    If they have black skin they might just be Silkies

    They do have black skin I think, it looks like it. They dont seem puffy enuff for silkies. Can they be crossed with something else. [​IMG]

    I don't know of many breeds with black skin, and beaks. But looking at them in that pic they do look like Silkies.
    Spread out their wing and see if their feathers are loose barbs or nice smooth feathers. Usually you can't tell they are Silkies til they are a few weeks old, their feathers might look the same as a non fluffy breed. Our Silkies wing feathers looked similar to the other breeds we had til they started getting older.
