    GeoBoy How come the first pictures hows the chicks to be fairly dark but not in the following ones ? Must be the ambient light. So what I really want to say is that that chick is not very melanotic, not black enough skin and erasing feather feet is almost impossible according to what I've been reading. She is a very pretty girlie though.

    I used to dislike feathered feet and legs but after I learned about the trait, I decided to accept it since there are so many traits that come with feathered footed birds. Maybe Lisa and Kev have more to say about those feathered footed creatures.

    The top pic is the most recent pic.The other pics are at different ages,not in order.Thanks for your reply.She is the only dark skinned naked neck that I have besides the showgirls that I recently hatched out.There is a couple of longtail breeders in my neck of the woods who I have heard are working on fibromelanotic birds.

    I'm not crazy about feathered feet either. I have had 6 chicks hatch out from my feather footed hens (2 frizzle bantam NNs) and my bantam NN roo. Half were clean legged, half feather legged. I think that's pretty good, but I have heard that it's hard to breed out of them completely.
