    All four of our BSLs' middle toenails are white, but the outside two are both black. Are your BSLs like this? [​IMG]

    Although I was told mine is an Australorp X... waiting till she gets a bit older to see if the neck feathers go red, that seems to be the easiest way to tell between a BSL and a Australorp X...

    But yeah.. middle toe is white.. No idea why [​IMG]

    I have one like that. There's no real significance that I know of. Just an unusual trait!

    I have a self-blue old english game bantam rooster like that. Don't know why, it's just a genetical trait.
