hello everyone! Thought I would show off my new baby chicks. This is my first adventure into chicken ownership and just in love with my little babies. I’ve got 2, 10 day old salmon faverolles, 1, 1 day old blue australorp, 1, 1 day old blue splash australorp, and 2 mottled Ameraucana. The breeder I got the Ameraucanas from gave me a discount because they have some feathers on their feet. She has a separate breeding pen for her project colour America as, and has no booted birds, so was pretty confused about how they got feathered feet. I’m not concerned, I love feathery feet and legs so the fluffier the merrier. Does anyone know what they originally interbred Ameraucanas with to get the mottled genes? Here’s some pictures of my little pumpkins.
