    Here's a pic of my Sultan, Lois. Her "pouf" is bigger now!

    And 1 of Lois's little baby, Ellie--

    The vulture hock is those larger feathers on the legs that sort of point backwards. You can't really see Lois's vulture hocks in that picture.

    This is Lois's baby picture--she's a pure bred sultan.

    Lois doesn't appear to have vulture hocks.

    I didn't take great pictures of my Sultan roo so I don't have any examples of vulture hocks. Maybe someone will come along with an example. Or go on Google Images and type in, "vulture hocks on chicken". In the second pic you can see some feathers beginning to jut out of the chicken's legs. Those are the start of vulture hocks.

    But here are some pics of Fuzzy the hatchery stock Sultan.

    As a cockerel. (He didn't grow his vulture hocks yet.)

    As an adult. (Molting.)
