BUYING CHICKS FROM FEED STORES
by Bianca Jimenez
(Waterford California USA)
We just bought about 3 bantam chicks and one of them has furry feet. When we asked, the store said they would turn out to be silkie bantams, which turn out fluffy instead of feathery. Here's the thing, the chick in question is starting to grow normal chicken feathers, nothing like the fluff of a silkie.
Is it possible that it might be a regular bantam that just-so-happens to have furry feet?
Or do silkie bantam chicks go through a stage where they grow regular feathers?
It would be great if you could email me the answer at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the least just send me the link to the answer.
Thank you so much
