This chick has a line of feathers on the outside of each shank. There are no chickens with feathered shanks around here.
The feathered leg gene is dominant (Pti). Are you are sure you do not have any birds with feathered legs? Could also be a mutation. Or it could lose them as it grows. I know some people have had feathered legs in their orpington chicks pop up, due to the cochin in their ancestry. But they lost the feathered legs as they grew.
Has it really been that long since you last visited? You do know we all enjoyed living vicariously through you in your village. Right?We've been pretty successful at keeping the chickens out of the house. The bananas I planted 10 months ago are starting to fruit, the rice harvest was reasonable, we sold 1,000 durians a couple of months ago. Life is good.
