    Hllo, I havefour 7 week old pullets, all of different breeds. One of them, the Ancona named Melon, has speckled feet. None of the Anconas I've ever seen pictures of have had speckled feet. This might sound like a dumb question, but it's my first time owning this breed and I wanted to know if she really is an Ancona. Sometimes I [​IMG]know they replace breeds before shipping if they need to.[​IMG]

    Yes she's and Ancona. This leg mottling is uncommon in the U.S. But the British Standards for Anconas actually calls for a line of leg mottling.
