“Feather Footed Fancy” does not refer to any one breed of chicken; rather it is a catch-all term for any chicken that has fluffy plumage on its legs and feet. These ornamental breeds have a unique and exotic look because of the feathers growing from their feet and legs. Feather Footed Breeds are often bred purely for ornamental and exhibition purposes, but some do have dual-purpose qualities. Often, owners of Feather Footed Chickens keep them in clean and dry coops to protect their leg and foot plumage, which tends to grow long and drag the ground. The following breeds at the Petting Farm at Mountain Valley View Farm are referred to as Feather Footed Fancies: Brahmas, Cochins, Langshans, Salmon Faverolles, and Sultans.
