The hatchery they came from doesn't offer Buff Rocks.

Looking back through their chick photos, around 60 days is when the legs lost the yellow and started going pink. 

 

Now as adults they're pinkish legs all the way.

 

Sorry for any confusion to the OP.

 

 

Same chicks from post above, as adults:

Yep! 

 

They really did have yellow legs until around day 45-60, then it transitioned to pink. 

I've seen other chicks do the same thing- yellow as babies then presto chango.

 

Thanks!

20 layers of various breeds, 1 rooster, and four F2 Super Blues- 2 pullets and 2 cockerels at 15 weeks old, and 16 chicks who jumped into my cart at the feed store!
