    My gp had chickens galore when I was little, a huge reason I have chickens. I do remember one breen he got and was all excited about one time. They had top hats, feathered feet, and were buff/gold. The best I remember he called them Chinese Crested. Not sure if there is a breed with that name, there isn't one on feathersite. Any ideas on what they may have been? My best memory is that they were gorgeous (at least to a 10 yr old..lol)

    The only crested featherfooted breed that comes to mind is the Sultan.

    Now remember I was little, but I think they were closer to a cochin shape, probably bantam, and I don't think golden polish have feathered feet do they?

    Now, may have been a sultan. Reminds me of what it may have been.
