I only have Orpintongs. Some buff hens and the rest lemon cuckoos. I have recently hatched a few batches of chicks. Now her is what is odd......... all my chickens have pink or pinky white legs. One of my 6 week old chicks had blue legs..........???? Is this possibly some throw-back gene?

Actually, that points to origins of your flock, at some point one of the hens likely was mixed in her bloodline, though she looks purebred from generations of pure mixes.

possibly. The breeder I got my initial cuckoos from had blues, blacks, and lavenders... maybe at one point there was some crossing. And just peeped out in this chick. :/ Either way the feathering is lovely. Should I not breed this one?
