    Do Buff Orpingtons usually have green feet? If not, then what does have green feet?!

    Americanas and Easter Eggers normally have green legs and feet. I don't know about the Orpingtons.

    Buff Orps have pinky white feet, so if yours have green, then they probably are crossbreeds somewhere along the line.

    Jackie......may I ask where you got your Buff Orps? I ordered mine from MM back in March. They are supposed to be "pure" BO. Well....of the 15 hens...one had bright yellow leggs, and 3 or 4 have greenish legs. So much for "pure"! I will be calling MM again later this week....after I get better pics of thier legs, in case they want proof. UGH! So much for 4 H hens!

    I got mine from a local breeder south of St. Louis. I don't mind the cross, but just was curious as I always see pinky legs on everyone else's buff orps. I figured she was a cross somewhere along the line...poor mut of a chicken. Speaking of chickens, off to care for the 'girls' one last time for the day.
