    I saw someone post on here that they were concerned that their chickens legs were brownish. Is this something to worry about? I have 4 RIR and some of them have darker legs than others. Mostly the older two have darker on the front of their legs. It doesn't look bad. In fact it looks totally normal to me, but I have never had chickens before. It's not scaly, no bugs, and it's just on the front and a little on the feet. This is normal right?

    Sounds fine to me, but to get a little more educated opinion, maybe you could post pics?

    But i really wouldn't worry. [​IMG]

    Chicken legs and feet vary so much in colour it shouldn;t be anything to get worried about unless the feet are scaly or bloody or swollen.

    Chickens are hardy critters leg colour isn;t a problem unless you want a perfect show girl! As long as you get an edible egg!!! who cares!!!! [​IMG]
