One Chick with Bright Orange Feet?!

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by PineBurrowPeeps, May 22, 2008.

  1. One of my almost 6 week old Buff Orpington chicks has bright orange legs and feet, while all the others have light/white colored legs and feet... I've started calling the little bugger Velveeta because it looks like someone tried to duck her feet in melted cheese!
    She (is supposed to be a girl anyway) is acting completely normal, healthy and spunky just like all the others, the skin is normal too..
    What gives with the funky feet?
    Is this normal?

    Probably a buff rock..they have yellow feet and are similar to the buff orp.

  4. Like how similar?

    I got these guys from Ideal and this chick looks EXACTLY like the other four Buff Orps she came with...
    odd.

    My accidental buff rock (was supposed to be an orpington) looks just like my orpingtons, except for his leg color and his comb is a brighter red then my orpington rooster.

    This sounds like my situation: I have 2 BO pullets, one of which has a pale comb/wattles and pale legs, and the other has a bright red/wattles and bright yellow legs. Sounds like I've got a buff rock myself. I was going to ask about this myself this weekend, but now I know!
