    What determines leg color? My two speckled sussex (about 5 and a half weeks old) have very different leg/foot color, one has yellow legs and the other pink-almost-white. What's the difference, if any? I'm just curious. [​IMG]

    I bet if you ask over at the, "Genes, Genetics, & Showing," area .... they would know.

    Maybe a moderator could move this over there for ya! Good luck!
