The attractive Sablepoot is classed as a true bantam and listed as a rare breed by The Rare Poultry Society.
Originally from the Netherlands and sometimes known as the booted bantam, Sablepoots are an ideal choice for a small garden having heavy feathering to the feet so doing little damage to the ground.
Sablepoots have charming personalities, they are friendly and calm and become quite tame. They are suitable for families with children and even the cockerels will come quite close to us for corn and have never shown us any aggression. Sablepoots lay a fair amount of white/tinted eggs throughout the season and also make good broody hens.
The plumage of Lemon Millefleur Sablepoots is striking, with the contrast of their lemon feathers splash with black and white markings. With their upright and proud carriage these little birds are worthwhile addition to any garden. At haytor Reach we have a large group of Lemons, with just under 30 birds running together.
