    We are starting our second year with chickens and are on round two of life with chicks. Last year we got 6 white leghorns (although lost 1 to a hawk late last summer) and have had fun raising them. This year we decided it would be nice to add some color to our flock and have 2 week old chicks picked up from the local feed store. We have 2 RIRs, 2 Barred Rocks and one Araucana (although I realize it is really an EE). Anyway, the EE has very dark green legs and feet - does this mean she will probably lay green eggs or is it not related at all? Just curious.

    Thanks!
