    Hello everyone! We have three 7 week old Ayam Cemani's. 2 cockerels and 1 pullet. One of the cockerels has feathered legs o_O They look purebred, they are completely black, inside and out. No white feathers, toes, or reddish combs- COMPLETELY black.

    So, I was just wondering if any other AC's breeders have experienced this? If so, please let me know! Thanks in advance! :)

    They are feather stubs, and yes, they are popping up a lot in this breed. Doesn't mean they aren't purebred, but the ones with feather stubs shouldn't be bred since that's not something you want to pass on.

    Oh, that's too bad. I wasn't planning on breeding him anyway.
