Hi, I have recently hatched some standard size black mottle Orpington chicks. This is a relatively new colour in Canada. All five chicks have slightly feathered legs. One incomplete line of feathers down each leg. Was this a normal result of breeding the mottled colour into the Orpington breed? The breeder I got the same HHS from said the parent stock dont have any feathered legs. Any thoughts appreciated. I am hoping to improve upon this colour breeding to some lovely English black Orpingtons.
