I am thinking about my spring chick order, and I have a question about feather-footed breeds such as faverolles and cochins. How dirty do their feet get? The reason that I ask is because I notice that my chickens sometimes step in poo and then bedding or straw from the ground sticks to it, causing a dreadful condition that I refer to as turdfoot. Fortunately, turdfoot only lasts a few minutes, then the offending blob falls off. But if it stuck to feathers that were on the foot, and became a more chronic condition, I would be totally grossed out. What do you think, should I pass on the feather-footed lovelies?
