When i went to buy my 4 pekin bantams last week, the seller also had one little porcelain sabelpoot or dutch booted bantam and i just could not resist her.  She has become my un official favourite, she is full of character, really cheeky and is the first to come running when i go in with food. She is also the tamest and will sit on my arm.
I was wondering if anyone else has a sabelpoot and what they think of them.

When I go to visit my mum at Howe Green, just as you come off the roundabout onto the old A130 there's a big sign that says something like Parakeets and Bantams.  Always thought I'd pop in to see what's there but never have the time.  I might try to look and report back if there's anything there.

This was just an advert on Preloved, the couple were selling all their chickens and run to get a caravan.

Hi i breed to sablepoots, the colours i keep are ... Lemon Millefleur (speckly gold) and the silvers and the citrus colours, they are such sweet little birds, really easy to keep just like pekins but smaller and lay quite an oval shaped egg with a bit of a pointy end, ive just put in some baby sablepoot growers so watch out, regards ronnie

Hi
I am glad to hear someone else has some. I absolutely adore my Bella.  If i get any more chooks in the future i would get more of them.  Being the only sabelpoot among pekins she is getting a bit bullied so she has taken to spending her time on the roof of the house poor love but she loves sitting on my arm and getting treats.
I'll contact you if i ever expand my flock

Hello,

I had a trio of sablepoots. they are absolutely smashing birds. their temprement is just delightful and they are soooo pretty.
I now only have the cockeral left and he looks after a mixed hareem of different girls and sizes.

I also have some sablepoot x pekins chicks who have come out of their eggs wanting to be friends with us.

They really are charming birds.

Lovely cockeral,

How old is he?

I found that my cockerals colouring has improved with age, he is much better coloured and patterned on his 3rd year, but his tail is a little bit shabby due to free ranging.
