Green can be a sign of bruising, but chick's legs CAN change color as they mature. Australorps are born with little yellow/spotted legs that turn gray/black by the time they are adults.

Unless she goes off her food and water, becomes lethargic, or exhibits any other odd symptoms, I'd say she's just growing up. :)

Feed stores get chicks mixed up ALL the time. I can't tell you how many people buy "Black Australorps" and end up with Black Sex Links. Both are great chickens, but if you specifically want Australorps, that would be disappointing.

As for runny poops, did you change their food recently? Also, do you have any Corid powder on hand? It's available at Tractor Supply.
