Chicken legs

Although you will often find the house to be standing on “chicken feet” in other translations, I have put this one on “chicken legs:” the Russian word “noga” is ambiguous: it means both “foot” and “leg,” the alternative word for “foot” being more technical and rarely used. I thought “leg” made more sense here than “foot.”

The magical house on chicken legs appears in many Russian magical tales.
