Tips From Our Junior Blogger: Types of Chicken Feathers

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger
Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a Kindergartener!

Types of Chicken Feathers


Webbed Feathers are the big feathers.  They are the feathers that are all over the outside of their body.  They also help them fly or they are on their tail. 

Bristled Feathers are the small feathers that go around their eyes, nose and mouth.

Plumules Feathers are small and fluffy.  They help chickens stay warm.  You can't see them because they are underneath bigger feathers.

Filoplumes Feathers are really small and they look like hairs. They are small so you can't really see them.  They make a chicken's feathers fluff out if they are scared or mad.  They also make them fluff out a little when it's cold outside and they are trying to stay warm.
