    I've been searching the internet tonight and can't find much helpful info. I'd like to know what kinds of chicks/chickens have fuzzy feet. I got some day old chicks today and among them were 25 supposed cornish rocks, which at this point are all tiny adorable yellow chicks. But I noticed that a couple of them have really fuzzy feet, is that possible with this breed?? I wonder if they mixed them up with some other chicks.... [​IMG]

    I don't know the answer, but you'll get better response if you move this to the "What Breed, Gender is This?" [​IMG]

    I haven't ever seen or heard of this. I have raised a few batches of CX and they had clean shanks. Where did you order them from?

    They came from Townline Hatchery, but I got them through our local farmer's co-op. They took many separate orders so if they sorted the chicks themselves I wouldn't be surprised if they mixed some up. I found a link with the kinds of chicks they hatch at Townline and (as long as it's not possible that these are Cornish Rocks) I think they might be Light Brahmas, they look similar to the chick pictures I looked up. Here's a link with the list of possible chicks..... http://www.townlinehatchery.com/hatchery_prices.htm

    I got Red Pullets from TSC and a couple have "fuzzy feet." I just assume it had to do with the molting process. Look's like they have big woolly socks on.

    they probably got a some light brahmas mixed in with the cornish they look the same as day olds just the legs are different.
