    That not all chickens with green legs are EEs...My Partridge Silkie/Barred Rock mixed chick has green legs...I guess the mix of the dark skin and yellow skin causes it too. Interesting huh...At least I think it is.... [​IMG]

    That's correct...many crosses can result with green legs. What makes an EE an EE is the cross that produces the possibility of laying tinted colored eggs.
