    Thanks. Are they generally more skittish than other breeds? I have other breeds that have always been very social with me. Thaw ones try to dig through the walls as soon as anyone walks up.

    Yes, leghorns have a reputation of being extremely flighty. Always have something good to eat for treats for them when you check on them, and they'll learn to look forward to you and accept your presence. I've never had an extremely tame leghorn, but I've tamed them enough to eat out of my hand and come to me.

    Cochins have feathered legs and have much fluffier, looser feathers.

    Thanks. I was wondering if that was what they are.
