    You'll have to reload the photos and make them bigger. The link isn't working for me.

    It doesn't like multiple pictures... I don't know why.
    Two More of Fluffy Buttons:

    Fluffy Buttons (Fluffy for short) appears to have some feathers growing on her feet..

    I was told they are probably around 6 months old.

    Does Shaquaria have feathered feet ?

    How about fluffy bottoms ? ?

    Where did you these birds from and how old are they ?

    Shaquaria is an pea combed something/ Barred-something cross. I have a hen whose sire was a BR rooster and mother an Ameraucana hen-she looks very much the same as your girl. They all look like crossbreeds.

    [​IMG] Yes, Shaquaria has feathered feet. My daughters think it makes her look like she is wearing bell bottoms!

    I think they are both around 6-7 months old.

    I agree with speckledhen, they both look like mixed breeds to me. That is why I asked where did you get them from. .. .

    Shaquaria might be mixed with a cochin, maran, or a few other breeds that have feathered feet.


    The second bird has coloring of an EE, but there are no muffs or tufts or beards . . . . The early red and still a hen reminds me of a comet. It will be interesting to find out what color egg she ends up laying . . .

    We got them from Heather's swap meet where she told me she got the eggs from another swap meet..... who knows??

    We'll see. She said she thinks they are about 5-6 months old.... hopefully they will be laying soon [​IMG]
