    Howdy Chicken Friends,

    Please forgive me in advance, this is my first time to try to post pics.

    We have one chicken that looks different from all the rest and have no clue what it is; breed or sex. I'm thinking it is a pullet, but I don't know...

    My son calls it "Harry"

    What color are it's legs? True Araucanas have no tails, while Ameraucanas will have slate legs... if it has green legs, it's prob an EE. It could be something else totally different too though.

    Whoa. Look at those feet! Maybe I don't get out much, but I've never seen feet colored like that before. So amazing! [​IMG]

    Yeah, this is the only one that has legs/feet that look like that. Can anyone tell if it is a roo or a pullet?

    Looks hen feathered to me... Thoes legs are dark! I bet they will lighten up significantly when she starts to lay...My leghorn had bright yellow legs... now they are whiter than her feathers...
