    According to the Standard of Perfection, most OEGBs should have bright red ear-lobes, but it really depends on the feather color type of OEGBs. The color of legs varies greatly depending on feather color. What feather color are you inquiring about?

    the birds above are known as Brown reds... but I would call them brown gold, they make perfect parent lines of Lemon Blues...

    The Barred will have a red comb, face, and wattles with slate legs
    The Brown Red will have Mulberry comb, face and wattles with black legs.

    Lemon Blue's can be found quite easily across the US and breed well with Brown Red as the lemon blue is the blue version of the brown red.

    Sjarvis not all Brown reds can be used as Lemon Blue breeders, some are red enhanced, Lemon Blues need Brown golds as background, I know brown gold is not a color type but its a lighter shade of gold....

    enhanced Brown Red

    I absolutely agree there Marvin,
    The second bird would make a better Lemon Blue Breeder bird and a cull Brown red as his hackles are too light. We typically breed for a very dark hackled Brown Red.
