Welcome to BYP icchookens.

No Wyandottes should not have 'hairy legs'
Legs would ideally be much more yellow.

Registered Breeder??
There is no registration process for poultry (like there is for some other animals) As far as I am aware you can be a registered member of a breed club (or general poultry club) but I don't think that makes you a 'Registered Breeder'.
Happy to be corrected here.

Could we please see some photos of the rest of the bird?

What does "registered breeder" mean?

If you are dissatisfied with your purchase it would seem sensible to take it up with the person who sold you the chicks.

How many chicks did you buy and how many have hairy legs?

What strategy you can use to ensure you buy stock that are to your expectations I dont know.

I would think even very talented and experienced poultry people would not be able to tell if a chick will be a champion show bird or just unremarkable as a chick.

If the X-men are mutants do they keep mutant chickens?

Thanks for your help ,I bought three chicks from this person ,they were actually suppose to be silver ,but being a novice I had no idea at the time,we already had three silver that we had bought as adult birds, when I realised they were gold it did nt really worry me because my husband had gone and bought four gold chicks from someone else ,all three of the first lot were roosters,when they were little none of them had feathers on their legs the feathers appeared as he matured,I picked out what I thought was the best one and gave the other two away .I am trying to contact the couple we gave them ,with no luck as yet ,to see if the other two are like it?I will try and get a picture of the whole bird later today and post it.
