We got a gold laced wyandotte mix last weekend at the Hatch-a-holic swap She is so cute!! I feel like she is growing before our eyes!! Ok here is my question - seller thought she was not a mix but when we got her out of the crate, we noticed she has feathered feet. She said that meant she was a cross with an EE not pure bred. I'm confused!! Do EE's have feathered feet? Or are foot feathers something present up to certain age and then go away?? Will the cross affect her laying potential or just mean eggs might be different color?? Also just please satisfy any lingering doubts - it's a girl right? I can't get a good picture of her b/c she is so fast. She runs like crazy when the Mean Girls are near and I can't coax her out from under the trees long enough to get a good shot. I think she looks like a little hawk!
