Orange/yellow chicken feet

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I noticed one of my Rhode Island Reds feet are different from the other RI's that I have. They are a bright orangish yellow like the color of a school bus. Is this a fungus or disease, anyone know and can direct me to a remedy?

Do you have a pic?
Are there any other symptoms?
Have they always been a different color?

All of my yellow legged Ladies had their feet and legs go orange a couple of months ago. it showed up over 2 days and lasted maybe 3 days. The only thing I could figure was they got into the merrigolds and were eating the flowers ( ate ALL of the flowers ) It was gone a few days later with no ill effects. I don't know if the flowers could pigment their skin like that, but it did happen shortly after the flowers were gone. The flowers were bright orange.

No matter where ya go, there ya are.

All I wanted was a few fresh eggs..............

Marigolds make nice yellow yolks too.  Anything rich in carotenes will brighten the leggs and yolks.
