LOL so they aren't true feathers?
They are true feathers, they lack the bardicels of most feathers which hold the individual hairs of a feather together. Because of this, the feathers are allowed to spread out into individual filaments causing them to have the appearance of fur, but they are in fact true feathers and function just as the normal feathers do on other breeds. It definitely makes them cuter though. :eek:)
