Porcelain Sabelpoot

Description

Sabelpoots or 'Booted Bantams,' are among the most friendly and attractive bantams we have reared, here the Porcelain are a lovely delicate colour.  Keen to check out what you're doing and readily flying onto your lap or shoulder, they make great pets.  Sabelpoots are quite productive, laying 4/5 creamy white eggs per week in the laying season, they can go broody if eggs are left. With Sabelpoot's feathered feet you hardly notice they've set foot on your lawn, an occasional footbath is a good idea if the ground gets a little muddy. Mareks vaccinated and outdoor reared.

Information for initial care is provided at our one hour free 'introduction to chicken keeping' courses held on Saturday mornings during the summer, booking required, details of courses on the Home page Notice Board.  We offer ongoing advice and support freely.

Our Opinion.. Great attractive little pets, especially if you want to preserve your lawn. Best to have hardwood chips or similar in their run if the ground is very wet (shown here on woodchips, a winter image the hens out of lay so have small combs)

Hatching eggs available Spring 2019 £1.50 ea.  Pullets available from Summer 2019.
