A friend has me hatch whatever her birds lay... Gertrude is her GIANT Green/Black Turken x Silkie ROO (NOT a Showgirl, as he hasn't got the Silkie feathering, nor the crest), and one of my friend's eggs (no telling which one, because all different types hatched overnight) produced a chipmunk-colored naked-neck with two side-bowties and puffy cheeks but no beard...and feathered legs and feet. Clearly Gertrude is the daddy. Can anyone show me what a non-Silkied Showgirl-cross with feathered legs and feet looks like, and has anyone grown out a chick that looks like this? My daughter jumped on it as her first love, and I fear she will be not as enamored a it grows into a big bird with lots of weird fleshiness. I've been promising she could have her own bird for years and she never found one she liked enough- not one that wasn't already part of our flock, clever Dolly! Its mother could have been: Buttercup banty EE banty Japanese GL Sebright BR The feathered legs are not manifested in the Gertrude (proud Papa) but somehow popped out despite a lack of feathered leg Mamas...don't ask me! I'm at a loss as to whether this will be the oddest bird ever or what!?!?! Help?
