    You might have a frizzle. The feathers curl toward the head on frizzles.

    Looks like a Frizzle Cochin to me (feather-footed). Where did you get her? What were you told she was?

    I got her with a group of mixed eggs, out of 30 eggs only 11 hatched (we lost power for 24 hours due to power company messing with the lines) 5 are big chiks and 5 are small/tiny with fuzzy feet, I was going to ask the group why the small ones have fuzzy feet, cute but odd, this little balck one is the only one with feathers that tip out. I thought it might be deformed.
    Guess I am wrong, Happy Happy Joy Joy. Thanks

    Mixed eggs...a surprise in every one [​IMG]

    You should post pics of them and we can help you try to identify them. The feather-footed ones could be Cochins, or Brahmas, Silkies, or several others.
