Chicken feet color

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've got 21 cornish x and I noticed this morning that only one of them has yellow feet, the rest are kind of a light brown, is this an issue?

How old are they? 
I know my roosters have much Yellower feet than the hens.

Pretty sure it's not an issue, unless the birds look drastically different otherwise.  In other words, just make sure that they are all meat chickens.

My cornish X's from Townline have legs that range from white to yellow.  Plus, one of my Buff Orpingtons has yellow legs, and they're supposed to be white!

Anyway, don't worry about their feet.  It's very likely just a natural variation.

Currently raising 75 meaties, 16 hens, and one rooster.

Want your cornish x's to have yellow feet? Feed them grass clippings or fresh clover. They will become as yellow as the sun, in just a day or 2.
