Hi,
I bought some hatching eggs recently - the hens are purebred WBW ameraucanas and purebred Faverolles, and all were covered by four different purebred roosters - Two blue wheaten ameraucanas, one wheaten ameraucana and one salmon Faverolles.
My question is - will those fertilized by the Faverolles all have an extra toe/feathered feet? Will these then be considered Favaucanas? Is it possible that some fertilized by the Faverolles not have that extra toe/feathered feet? Thanks!

I'm not a breeder but here's my input:
If your female Faverolles are bred to your male Faverolles=Faverolle (obviously)
Anything else would not be considered a Favaucana because they would technically be mixed breeds; Faverolle/whatever else. Here's what I found on another thread from BYC, " Ptilipody (feathered feet) are caused by three genes, two are incompletely dominant and one is recessive. One of the incompletely dominant genes has two separate alleles for feathered feet as well as one that is not-feathered feet." from: edelras.nl by: BYC member: Sonoran Silkies. So feathred feet is not dominate and thus, your chicks will have the possibility of no feathered feet.
