thanks for the welcome, am looking at the breed pages for particulars. I'm trying to figure it out because my white hen has been laying for just over three weeks, the reds are the same age but aren't laying yet, and the two little black ones are about a month younger and want to know when they may start. everyone knows more than I do, so any imput appreciated.
this shows the legs on the black one. I'm reading as fast I can, but am not sure what exactly you're asking about feathered legs. Just bought a guide to chickens, and have been haunting the breed pages here so I'm learning, but don't have an intelligent answer for you other than the pic.
