  1. Hi! A couple of the toes are white and they'll probably stay white. Slate or not slate?

  3. Hi! Thanks to all that voted and thanks Sonoran. They *look* slate to me.
    I'll get a pic of the bird that belongs to the legs this evening.

    I would be interested in knowing what colour those who votes "not slate" think they are.

  6. Quote:Hi! Maybe some think the white toes would keep it from being 'completely' slate? I'm curious, too.
    Thanks BellevueOmlet! They look slate so they must be slate, right?

    Dipsy, why couldnt those be like a sumatras leg? Instead of black with yellow soles maybe its slate with white soles?
