    I have RIR, SLW, Cochin (black) and Cinnamon Queen hens. Until recently I had a Cochin (black) rooster. I hatched out six chicks. Three of the chicks are white, one is gold, one is black, one looks like a GLW. All have feathered legs. Would someone explain to me the genetics behind this?

    Anyone?

    Is it possible to get GLW from SLW hen? It must be possible, but how does it work?

    Does the one that looks like a GLW have feathered legs?
