    I have a new Americana chick that appears to have an olive tint to her legs... is that a problem, or is it normal for their breed of chicken?

    Thank you so much. I’m new at chicken raising, and this just seemed unusual. :jumpy

    Green legs= Easter Egger. It’s a common trait for them. Most Americana’s are actually Easter Eggers. You should hopefully get a colored egg though. My Easter Eggers have always laid mint green eggs but they can lay blue, pink, green, brown.

    Where did you get your chick from? I'm thinking it's an EE and not an Ameraucana :idunno

    My "Ameraucana" has olive legs too. If you got it from TSC its probably an EE. Which is normal..
