The Booted Bantam or Sablepoot is an ancient breed that originates from Europe. They are a true bantam. They are a small smart little bird, with lots of character. They come in a variety of colours including black, white, black mottled, millefleur and porcelain, are very tame and easy to handle.

Some Lemon millefleur. They can't be left free range for long as they go off and lay in the long grass then choose to roost in the apple trees - it's no fun climbing trees when the lights almost gone. They are sturdy little birds brimming with character. Great little pets for a smaller garden.

That's a relief. I thought it was some of that text shorthand that I don't follow too well. :lol: My apple tree's turned into a link to something. Isn't modern technology wonderful.

At what age do they start to lay?

I have a pair of porcelain sabepoots they are about 24 weeks old but the comb on the pullet is still pale and she spends most of the time hiding under the cckerals wing.

I hatched some lemon sablepoots eggs yesterday. I bought them on the internet. They are soooo tiny and sweet! I cant wait to see what they will turn out like! One of them has legs quite far spread and I was just wondering if I need to do the deed? They are so sweet I dont know if I can do it. I may get a friend to help me if I do need to. How long before I know if they are cocks or hens? I want to swap a cock or two (if I have some in this lot) so that I can have cocks with a different blood line. I am in west wales. If anyone could help that would be great :flower:
