    We have 4 Red Crested Red Polish from Ideal and one of them has blue legs [​IMG] any Ideas why?

    He/She is definatly a Polish crested head and all

    Ok so I have 5 Polish and only one has blue legs

    One has gray with black stripes (WCB) and the others have yellow/flesh colored legs.

    Do they stay that color blue or do they darken as they age, because in the baby pictures they all have fleshtoned legs?

    I would assume a barred plymouth rock x polish. The yellow legs from the barred rock. Check the comb to see what type of comb it is.
