    Do all chickens have all of these parts in greater or lesser extent, or are some features exclusive to certain breeds? I’m not sure I see Sickle feathers on every chicken I see

    Having been surrounded by chickens this week, I tried to refer to these as reference but found that on real chickens the specific parts are remarkably difficult to identify. I think that on some chickens specific parts are more well developed than others, but all have all parts. I’m not 100% sure though

    The more diagrams I looked at the more complicated it became so I’m not surprised you got confused too!
