All of my hens are clean legged, & so is my rooster. A hen just went broody on a mix of eggs, & hatched six chicks. At least two of the chicks have feathered legs, but neither of their parents do. From my understanding, since the gene is dominant, the carrier of the gene would have to be feather legged? Can a chicken be a carrier of this gene if they don't show it? And would both parents have to carry this gene for the offspring to have feathered legs?
