    Hello everyone, I need some feedback. I have two barnvelders and they have different leg colors. My smaller one has a good yellow color to her legs and feet and the bigger of the two (although they are the same age) has more of a pale greyish color to her legs and feet. Is this something that I need to worry about? Could she be sick or does leg color vary within the breed? I've only had her for about a month and I just noticed it the other day. She is eating and drinking well and seems to be as active as the other girls. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks! [​IMG]

    leg color on Barnevelders should be bright yellow, it could just be the one with grey legs is older (the yellow fades with time) or that the quality is not as pure.
