I have two week old chicks and three have strange foot coloring. They have black feet but the middle toe is orange. Two come from a Polish hen and one from a Cornish hen. The papa is either an EE or a Polish. I can see the Cornish having the orange but not the Polish. Anyone have any insight on the strange coloring?

Don't worry, not that odd. Quite a few of my F1 Ameraucana cross chicks had that sort of coloring on their feet. The darker chicks had dark legs, up until their toes, which were orange. I thought it was really cute

Why it happens, I'm not sure.
