Ameraucana leg color

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Should all ameraucana have slate colored legs? A friend of mine just hatched 9 blue eggs and 4 of them have slate colored legs and the other 5 have yellow colored legs. He is not sure if his RIR rooster hooked up with a few of his girls or not. Any info will be great Thanks!

I think I read somewhere that Ameraucana's have white skin, so they shouldn't have yellow legs.   But someone will correct me if I am wrong.

Oh btw roll I just remembered that the hens are Araucana and the rooster is Ameraucana... maybe this makes a difference?

Yes makes a big difference, because Araucana's have yellow skin, so you would get yellow legs.
