Feathered Leg Breeds?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have some crosses of unknown original - some with very lightly feathered legs, some with lightly feathered legs & feet.  What are the breeds that display these traits?

i ran around getting a bunch of bad photos and missed one bird altogether.  any help that you can give me to identify what they are would be helpful (just for my curiosity) & appreciated.  they are all 11 wks old.

 

photos 1 & 2: orange pullet, lightly feathered legs

 

 

 

 

black & white cockerels (barred rock x with what?) clean legs; red cockerel, clean legs; black pullet, feathered legs

 

 

 

 

 

the following are either the same pullet, or sisters (i have 2 that look alike), clean legs

here's one more - pullet, predominantly white, little bit of brown/cream, clean legs, 11 wks old.

 

i had 8 chicks (the white one below and the ones above) hatch from 9 eggs i got from two different farms.  one place had a mix of aracauna, RIR, barred rock & wyandotte.  i can tell the RIR and BR (cockerels above).  who looks like an aracauna or wyandotte?  i don't know what stock the other 4 came from.

The person who had the aracaunas, R!R, BR and wyandottes had varying shades of brown eggs.  The person who gave me the other 4 eggs (don't know what kind of birds they had) had mostly brown, but one blueish egg (so i guess that would be the EE).
