    Someone in the MySpace Pet Chickens group posted asking what breed and gender this is. I in my infinite newbie wisdom cannot remember feathered feet breeds [​IMG] but I did say I thought she has a girl. Anyone? [​IMG]

    Feather footed hen of some sort, no head ruff, buff color.
    But that is the limit of my "breed brains."
    Favarolle, maybe?

    All of you people, with your vast knowledge of this breed or that breed, this color or that little nuance of beak shape. I tend to generalize: a chicken is a chicken and honestly, in the main, that's normally enough.

    Oh, things like feathered feet or no tail stand out, and I can tell the difference between a hen and a cock. And I do know a Naked Neck when I see one.

    But, show a sideways, fuzzy picture of some random clucker and youll have the breed, strain, history, possible genetic combinations and the most likely hatchery of origin figured out. It boggles me.

    I don't know what it is, but I like it anyway. Maybe I'm partial to red chickens though since I'm a redhead [​IMG]
