    I have some Bantam Blue Plymouth Rocks and for them to be show quality, they must have yellow or dusky yellow legs. Many people know that it is hard to get a good bright yellow on a blue bird. I was hoping to show/breed these guys, but I'm not sure if their legs are yellow enough. I'm not really sure what "dusky" yellow means either. It says in SOP book that "Any other color than yellow and dusky yellow to disqualify".
    Please take a look and let me know what you think. These are both pullets around 9-10 months old. Thanks in advance.

    Both of them.

    I'd say those are fine. I believe what the SOP means by that is, say, a slate blue color or something. Basically something that isn't yellow based. So, it is preferred and perfect that the shanks are solid yellow but generally many may have some dark coloration.
