    I have 4 chicks which originally came from a classroom hatching. One just sprouted ear muffs at 6 weeks. Do you think she(?) is an EE? She has 4 toes and pale yellow legs.

    This one started out all white with a few small black spots (like a California White Leghorn) then began to develop some reddish feathers and now at 6 weeks is sprouting wattles. He(?) has 4 toes and green, or willow colored legs. The only thing I could find that matched this description was an old Leghorn cross (Central Hatchery) called a red leg. Any ideas?

    Maybe they are both ee crosses? If the second one has green legs... Does anything else have green legs?

    I bet the first one is a hen, second a roo (in my uneducated guessing)

    Age 5 weeks. #2 is on the left and you can see the green legs. #3 is on the right. She is almost completely black with mostly black legs. I thought she might be a black star or some type of black sex link cross. Anyway, I'm guessing she's a girl.

    This is #4 at 5 weeks. I was thinking that if some of these were black sex links, this could be a roo black sex link because all the boys are barred. However, at six weeks both of these chicks look exactly the same only a little bigger. They both look like girls to me but I'm not an expert at this.
