    humm my barre rocks have more of a slaty/ashy colored legs. I won this rooster, and the man was given the egg ( two actually)by a friend and just stuck it under his hen and she hatched it out and he had no idea what it was.. he thought a br but wow those legs are sooooo yellow. ??
    wierd . the other egg hatched out a again bright yellow shanked barred pullet.. but she has a rose comb not a straight like BR no idea what these two are mixed with??

    Rose comb = Dominique

    Both should have solid yellow legs but some don't, especially production bred birds.
