Quote:See- look at the difference in the leg color. I hope my babies from Jean are girls, I am buried in roos. Actually their legs are darker than what shows in the pictures, but not as dark as your buffs. My Meredith buffs have darker blue legs than Jean's buffs. I happen to love the contrast of the dark blue legs with the buff colored feathers I hatched mostly buff roos also One of my Meredith buffs has white legs so far, figures its a girl! So- is crossing with the wheatens supposed to have any effect on plumage color, or just type and egg color? I'd hate to be counter-progressive by adding my "I don't feel like laying until I'm a year old" genes.
