    I have a new EE chick, now about 1 week old, from Meyer Hatchery. Her legs are just barely tinted green. She is a blonde chick, perhaps will be white or buff.

    With her legs having so little green in them, I am thinking she might lay brown eggs. [​IMG] Anyone have experience with this?

    Leg color has nothing to do with egg color.
  3. Vermontgal, I think that this is hilarious! I posted the same question last week, and also live in central vermont. everyone assured me that leg color has nothing to do with egg color, which is a little disappointing, but I can't wait to see what I get.

    Cool. I *did* try to search on "EE leg color" and got many hits, most of which have nothing to do with my question.

    chickensducks&agoose That is very funny. On my side, I am *hoping* that the leg color doesn't mean anything because the legs are boring. I want green. [​IMG]

    I have 2 EE's both dark green legs, they both lay very light green eggs.
  7. Vermont gal, if your EE turns out to lay boring eggs, I've got 3, and might be willing to trade, if more than one of mine lays green...
