Standard Varieties of Chickens:

Booted White Bantams


Booted White Bantams, as their name implies, are distinguished by heavily feathered or booted shanks. They have a small head and medium-sized single comb. The hackles are long and partly cover the shoulders; the wings are large and slightly drooping; the tail is upright, with long sickles and abundant coverts; thighs, medium in length, and covered with long, stiff feathers or vulture hocks, which nearly reach the ground; toes and shanks, yellow. The plumage is pure white.
