    I got 6 production reds or sex links (I'm still new , they look like everyone else's sex links here) at TSC end of March. About a month ago I noted one of girls with leg that is distinctly greenish. She looks like a normal red hen, but if I couldnt see her body and only one leg, I would say EE. Anyone else ever heard or seen that? I can eventually post a pic but really it is medium green on one half of one leg. A pic would be difficult to get perfect, but I could try. I have started calling her GL for short ( green leg) I know, not original.[​IMG]

    I had a cross between a BWA and a Cinnamon Queen that had one yellow leg and one green leg... but it looked female on one side and male on the other two! Weird looking chicken.

    Okay, these are pics of my green leg (AKA "GL"), harder than I thought to get the silly bird to let me snap a picture![​IMG]

    Thanks for input - edited to add -- this is one chicken, just different angles trying to capture the leg, none of the others have a green leg, and the rooster that I accidently picked up in the group of six is in the first pic to left in background

    Oh my goodness, what a unique little lady! Heehee she'd be my favorite. It's probably like a human birthmark, sometimes skincolor just gets weird on critters.
