Young Brahma with different colored legs - pigment loss?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have eight 7-week old Light Brahmas. One of them, which I'm guessing maybe a pullet, has "pinkish" legs and comb than the rest of them. She is the only one. Is she lacking pigment? Will her legs and beak eventually turn yellow like they're supposed to? Will it effect the yolk color of her eggs when she starts laying? I never heard or seen this before, and she's a very healthy hen, just discolored legs and comb. Here are a few pictures of her legs and head compared to one of the others. She's in the first two. 

 

 

 

 

2 Barred Rocks, 4 White Leghorns, 6 Light Brahmas, and 3 Partridge Rocks

I would assume it's just a genetic throwback, and she will always be more pink.
