    Anybody seen this leg coloration before? I'm hoping it might give me a clue as to her breed background. I know who the roo was but not the hen. Any ideas?

    The legs are white like those of English class breeds such as Orpingtons. Can you post a pic of the entire bird?

    It's the golden brown shins/shanks that have thrown me. I've never seen that before.

    Your pullet looks like a Buff Orpington mixed breed.

    She's one quarter buff Orpington ( hatchery stock ) and one quarter Easter egger. I have no idea on the rest.
