Hard Feather : the feathers lay close to the bird and minimal under plumage. Like American Game fowl and Asian hard feather breeds.

Soft Feather: the underplumage is more pronounced and the outer plumage doesn't lay as close to the body. Like Marans, Orpingtons, Sussex, Barnevelder, etc.

Put your breed into an internet search engine and a description will come up which will tell you.
Best,
Karen
