    I have some crosses of unknown original - some with very lightly feathered legs, some with lightly feathered legs & feet. What are the breeds that display these traits?

    i ran around getting a bunch of bad photos and missed one bird altogether. any help that you can give me to identify what they are would be helpful (just for my curiosity) & appreciated. they are all 11 wks old.

    photos 1 & 2: orange pullet, lightly feathered legs

    here's one more - pullet, predominantly white, little bit of brown/cream, clean legs, 11 wks old.

    i had 8 chicks (the white one below and the ones above) hatch from 9 eggs i got from two different farms. one place had a mix of aracauna, RIR, barred rock & wyandotte. i can tell the RIR and BR (cockerels above). who looks like an aracauna or wyandotte? i don't know what stock the other 4 came from.

    The person who had the aracaunas, R!R, BR and wyandottes had varying shades of brown eggs. The person who gave me the other 4 eggs (don't know what kind of birds they had) had mostly brown, but one blueish egg (so i guess that would be the EE).

    We just received our babies this morning! 4-Red Stars, 4-Barred Rocks, 15-Silkies and our free exotic...lol

    Can anyone help with the breed? Appears to have 4 toes and feathered legs. I've tried to match the markings/color, though really new to this.[​IMG]
