I'm curious as to what dictates leg color in chickens. I have a bantam BTW japanese hen (yellow legs) who hatched out four chicks. One had black/slate legs, three had white legs. At the time she was bred, there was only black bantam OEG roosters (black/slate legs) and one bantam BTW japanese male (yellow legs). I doubt the jap male bred her because he's lowest on the pecking order, plus the chicks are mostly black and not BTW. Where did the white come from?
