    Went to pick up a couple Leghorn chicks, and fell in ♥love♥ with a little silvery gray chick, with little patches of yellow!
    She's adorable! The guy said she was an "Ameraucana" or an Ameraucana cross....probably what's called the "Easter Egger".
    But then, I noticed after getting home, she has fuzz on her legs/feet..
    Can Easter Eggers have feathered feet, or no?

    [​IMG] yes they can have feathered feet.They are a cross breed so there is no breed standard.You can have a frizzle naked neck top hat EE if you want...my daughter's working on one for her collection [​IMG] The EE's are our fun bird you can get so many pretty color patterns
    Congratulations on the chick [​IMG]
