    I bought several mystery chicks from BYC. Cannot get the picture to upload. But the chick was yellow and at 3 weeks is mainly white but showing some faint dark threads. Sort of like an old hair dye in need of a root touch-up! Feet are greenish. Any guesses?:/

    You might need to make a few more posts before you can post pics?
    Not sure but pics are they best way to ID birds, tho chicks can be hard to ID.
    Green legs says EE (easter egger) to me.

    Any ideas on why only one of my Rhode island reds has yellow legs, the other3 have white legs?

    How old are they? If they're laying, they're just kinda bleached out--the yellow will return when they take a break during molt. Or, they could be mixed with a white legged breed like Orpington, Sussex, etc.

    The hens are layers. The pullets should start very soon. None are molding currently. I was told by an extension office near me that they are most likely hybrid birds. But the color is virtually white, not just "washed out".
