Facts

This ornamental breed is first thought to have originated in China during the 1800s. They are made distinct from other breeds of Chicken by their heavily feathered legs and feet, sometimes obscuring the limbs almost entirely- meaning they must be groomed carefully to avoid becoming soiled. They have a very wide range of colourings, and can be found in almost every colour and variety viable for chickens.
