    Ok... I've been using backyard chickens for a while but just now joined. I looked in the search but can't find an answer to this question. So I was not thinking and put all my chicks in the same brooder box now I'm down to the last of my chicks and my was trying to sale my French cooper Maran chicks but didn't want to sale my black Cochins. So as I'm looking at them trying to find the Cochins and pull them out I was looking for feathered feet... My 12 year old son looked at me and said mom the French cooper Maran's have feathers on there feet too. So what do I do if anyone has any idea I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance
