    I think they are about 2 months old. I believe the larger and darker one is a male. The lighter one appears to have greenish colored legs.

    Good to know! So only EEs have the green legs? But the male (the darker bird) has yellow legs. No green on him.

    Quote:No, there are several breeds that have green ("Willow" in the standards) legs, but EEs are the most common in current hatchery stock in the US. On the other hand, from what I've been reading, not all EEs have green legs. The "What Breed or Gender" forum needs some kind of disclaimer that one needn't be an expert to post here, I suspect.

    EEs, yes.

    Stumpfarmer, I agree! And I think it's true that not all EEs have green legs. [​IMG]
