Okay, so my partridge silkie Ziggy never developed leg feathers, she is over a year old and From what research I did people have stated "They are not purebred silkies if they have no leg feathering" I ordered her and 5 other SILKIES from a hatchery and she is the only one who never got leg feathering. I recently purchased 2 buff silkie chicks. They are around 2 months old now and i noticed Lil' bit also has no leg feathers! I realize they will never be show quality, but i saw the mother and father of the buff's and no doubt she is a purebred. Is this a deformity? What causes lack of leg feathers? Does anyone else have silkies like this? He here are the comparisons between them and their "siblings" I know dusty has a crooked toe, I guess he was born that way! Sorry if the images are upside down.
