    my buff orp roos feet are turning red and it is running up his legs. is this normal or should i worry?
     
  2. Can you take a pic of this and post it ?
    Some birds have a reddish pigment in thier legs, not completely red, but just parts and scales. This is normal for some breeds.

    But, if your bird is turning a solid red, then i would say you MAY have a problem.

    I remember a post on here about red colored legs, but I just do not have the memory to get there, I did not post on it, so I can not locate it.

    It is normal for a maturing rooster.

    That's why I love this forum, you learn things you'd never find in a book.

    Ditto, chickenfever. I know that this is an old thread, but I did a search for the same issue. This site is an amazing source of information. Thanks!
