I have 5 5-7 week old chicks
I know that one is a sex-link, two are slikies, one is yellow and I have no idea what she/he is.
The last one is big really big and has green legs, yes green. Well greenish and did I say big?
I have not been on the list long enough to post pics, but I would still like some advise.
Any ideas?

Yup. Sounds like an Easter Egger (or an Americauna).  I have two and they have legs just like youre describing.

Thinking of medicating your birds? STOP!! Please research this forum before giving your birds meds. The wrong medicine can make a chicken worse. Your bird may not even be sick! Lots of normal chicken behaviors are mistaken for illness by new chicken keepers. THINK BEFORE YOU MEDICATE.

We bought 11 acres of farmland with lots of room for chickens! Chicken keeper for 3 years; flock of 30+.

thanks all for your help. My son was worried that we had a pheasant.
This one has quite the build. I do not think we have pheasant but who knows.
When you purchase straight run from the feed store you take you chances.
I will keep posting so that I am no longer new and photos will be in the near future.

Thanks again
Jen

Pretty EE!

I can't tell from your photo but does she have puffy cheeks also?  Her coloration reminds me of my Welsummers.  And yeah, EEs tend to have pretty thick legs for the size of the chick.
