    Do Blue Orpingtons ONLY have solid blue/dark legs or can they be partly dark? I finally found someone with blue orp chicks for sale so I went to pick some up yesterday. The brooder had lots of blue and splash chicks to choose from. I picked some that were blue and some light ones that I was told would be splash to get a variety but I noticed only one with solid dark legs and the rest have legs that are only partly dark.

    Did I end up with all but one splash even though the chicks are blue/yellowish white or is it possible I have more blues? Thanks for any information!!
