is this the actual feet or their legs? seems I remember sometime ago about someone posting about their duck having feathers on their legs. can you post a pic?

Start a line only breeding its young then grand young ect to it and parent possibly, until see more/only feather feeted completely, then sell to holderheads, and metzers, for easily half a million dollars, and they can then sell making a lot more and claim another "heritage" breed.
