    I am new to chickens. I have a 1 1/2 month old RIR that has some weird stuff going on. It has thick feathers growing off its legs and has an extra toe on each foot. The extra toes are part of one there already. The neck has thick feathers on it also and has feathers sticking straight out from the ears. Very strange looking! It is acting normal, seems to be eating and drinking normal. Do I Worry??

    Five toes, feathered legs and a beard--I think that's a favorolle--pretty sure I didn't spell that right--but your bird is a mix, possibly rir and that other breed. Nothing wrong with it, not a freak.

    Thanks everyone. I got the chicks from a local hatchery, Southern Farms Hatchery, Hancock County MS. They ship all over, the owner seems really friendly and helpful. They do have a website and ship small orders.
