Green legged chicken - Page 2

post #11 of 43

this is Green Legged Partridge Hen [zielononóżka kuropatwiana -> zielono =green, nóżka =little leg, kuropatwiana =partridge], and a chicks. Green legs+green legs = green legs in this case:) They lay medium eggs [sometimes on smallish side] proven 30% less in cholesterol than normal egg, good layers[160-180/year], and born free range. Meat low in fat, very good and darker than usual chicken [not silkie dark, just darker than cornish cross ]

My 9 yr old black giant hen has willow legs, yellow foot pads.  Most of my araucana have willow legs, my blacks are slate legged but one and she has willow.

Kurka, lovely birds there! i thought they would have been Welsummers but looking at the legs, nope LOL!

Rootball, Araucanas and Amercuanas do NOT have green legs, only the EE's do.

My hen Twizzler has green legs! Actually all my chickens are brothers and sisters from same clutch. They are 75% Arucana 25% Easter Egger. Twizzler is the only one with green legs. My other chickens all have different colored legs, Oreo's are yellow, Hershey's black, and Skittles are pink! Twizzler and Skittles are my girls.

Actually araucana DO have green (willow) legs; so do many other recognised breeds.  A year or so ago I went through the Bantam standard and listed all the breeds.  Not gonna do it again--too long and time consuming wink

There is no standard for EEs, so they may or may not have willow legs.  SIlly me; THIS is one of the threads where I looked up the breeds--a couple of YEARS ago, lol.  I really should pay attention to dates before responding gig
