    we are hatching a barnyard mix from a neighboor who has a lot of chickens, and some have feathered legs and some have beards. the babies have hatched and I was curious of if anf when do, say baby Easter Eggers and Americana (spelled wrong) get their beards? and fyi they are 'mutts' they are orphington, Americana, EE Maran mixes and te colours certianly vary, so they are around 2-3 days, is that good enough to post a picture? old enough?

    Generally fluffy faces and cheeks will be noted on birds that will be bearded when they mature.
