    Hi! I'm new to BackYardChickens and I know that someone will have the answer to my question. I have three Buff Orpingtons that I added to my flock. I bought them as pullets. Here's the problem. One of them has leg feathers. Also, after reading a few posts I think they're probably Buff Rocks. That aside, I still am puzzled by the leg feathers. Thanks so much for helping me out with this...[​IMG]

    I'm not sure what your question is.... But your feathered leg hen could be any number of breeds. Perhaps a buff colored Cochin? If you could add some pictures and post them in the 'breeds and genetics' section, you would probably get some great answers.

    Sorry I couldnt be more help.

    Need pics!

    Also- does it matter? will it be a problem, or are you just wondering if you have a second breed?
