    I have three Barred Rock pullets (4 mo old). Two of them I just purchased have white legs, and my other BR has yellow legs. Can anyone tell me why they are different? Different breeders? I know mine came from my pet chicken and the newer chicks came from McMurray. Any ideas?

    thanks!

    The one with white legs isn't a Barred Rock, it's a Cuckoo Marans. [​IMG]


    Expect slightly darker eggs from her, although most Cuckoo Marans really don't lay that much darker of eggs, sadly.

    Thank you LLLia! Wow! I never would have guessed! I'm so glad you had the answer. It still amazes me that there are so many different kinds of chickens out there. [​IMG]
