Light Sussex and their leg colour

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello from Australia fellow Chooky people!

 

I have just become the proud owner of 4, 4 month old, beautiful Light Sussex hens, Rowena, Harriett, Polly and Sybil.  They are making me laugh every day!  My question for today is; Rowena has white legs and beak and the other 3 have yellow legs and beak. Would anyone know why this is?

 

Two of my girls :cd

Sorry for late reply!

Pure Light Sussex have white legs. It sounds like the other three are Columbian Rock Hens.

Here's a link to an image of a Columbian Rock Hen.

Do your three look like the hen in the picture?

Hope this helps! wink.png
