    Momma is a Barred Rock.
    Daddy came from my Easter Eggers. Americauna/Aracauna. Whatever you call it.
    None of my birds have feathered feet. What!? How???

    Did you get your birds just recently? If so maybe before you got them the hen was fertilized by another rooster.

    Nope. I raised them from the egg. The barred rock I purchased as a 3day old chick from a breeder.

    Interesting must be they have a recessive gene.

    My EE's are feather-footed so it's probably a recessive gene.

    They say with barred rocks you can tell the gender from the chick by its coloration. Like a white spot on its head. Is this true?
