I don't recall where I read it but there are a growing number of scientist's that are leaning towards the idea that many dinosaurs were feathered as opposed to having a leathery type of outer covering.

Yes, some of the carnivorous dinosaurs have been found with feather imprints, particularly the ones coming out of China right now. There have been some with stiff feathers and some with down feathers like you'd see on a silkie. It's put new interest in the cold-blooded vs warm-blooded dinosaur debate. Interesting stuff. :) Either way these dinosaur bones actually look very bird-like and the dinosaur to bird evolution theory has been around since the 1800's. (I also wrote about that if anyone cares to take a gander feel free:
What is the Theory of Dinosaur to Bird Evolution)
PS I think the "gamey" breeds look very dinosaur-like. I can't help but think so every time I see one!

Why is this in incubation and hatching? Just a question.
