    I have a chick about five weeks old, and it's legs and feet are black with the middle toes bright orange. The chick itself is nearly all black, with white markings on its head. The parents are both white leghorns. I'm just wondering, is there any breed that has feet like this, or is it just the result of cross-breeding?

    most black birds have black legs and feet. the bottom foot color can be white, pink, or yellow. My sumatras have black legs and feet bottoms are yellow. As chicks the yellow can be up on the foot or leg some, it slowly turns black so that only the bottoms of the feet have the yellow.
