    I purchased some Wyandotte eggs, and the lady told me that there was a chance of a few mixes too. There were mostly Wyandottes in the pen- mixed colors, but also an Ameracauna Roo, and a couple of Australorp hens. More than half of the chicks that hatched looked just like this- curious if its a pure.. no muffs, rose comb, but darker legs.. help?

    Blue birds can sometimes have blue legs. Leg color can change some from when thier little.
    they might be austro crosses though.

    Quote:Agreed, but they have ALOT of slate in their legs. I'd guess mix.
