    What color feet do EEs have. I am confused my chick was born with yellow feet. My EEs feet aren't yellow and the my roos are a ameraucana. I am confused, what color are EEs feet?

    Typically EE's will have green legs with yellow soles, willow. Though, like previously mentioned they can have any color and that color will depend on how far away they are from pure Ameraucana/Araucana blood or Quechua blood.

    It's also possible the leg color will change. My EE chicks produced from an AM roo over various breeds of hens were born with non-slate/green legs but after a few days all but their toes and/or soles were slate or green.

    It's also possible they really are that color if your AM roo is actually an EE.
