Heidi, thanks for your excellent explanation. I will study this some more to get a better grasp, so when I look at pictures, I won't be so befuddled. I fixed the title. This is a good learning experience for the "oh so smart" city girl! Zsuzsi
Hackle feathers are those long skinny feathers over the butt in front of the longer tail feathers. They're very popular for use in fly fishing lures. In the case of this (possibly) Wyandotte rooster, they're the long cream colored feathers in front of his relatively short black tail feathers.
John & Heidi, thanks for the info. I have no idea what hackle feathers are.
ROOSTER!!! Hens don't have hackle feathers.
