According to Mr. Follows the yellow skin (legs) comes from Pricilla Middleton breeding the into the Silver Laced Wyandotte. Bob Follows Silver Laced do not carry these yellow genes. This information was sent to Autumn Farms by Mr. Bob Follows. There is actually two different bloodlines of Silver Laced Orpingtons. Bob Follows has been very careful not to mix these two bloodlines to make sure this yellow skin is not passed through his created line of Silver Laced Orpingtons.
