    One of my chicks has, how should I say this, Fluff? I don't really know what to call it but it's there haha. I tried to wash it off because I thought maybe poo stuck to him and he collected the fluff thoughout his day but the is actually growing on his feet. Anyone have an explanation as to why? Or if it will go away?

    You probably have a breed with feathered legs...
    I am sure someone else can tell you more

    Your baby is probably some kind of feather footed breed. Like my babies:
