    TIME URGENT: Need dosage for poly-vi-sol. (Not for myself but a friend is having problems and wants to use it.)

    I have hatched quite a few SFH chicks that look just like your "little black" did as a chick. In fact, more than other colors at hatch.

    It is interesting - I have to say I have never had one look like that at that age. And all of mine have always had very yellow legs and feet - mottled with black/grey sometimes, but with a very yellow base..

    Updated pic of the one I asked about earlier. Is he/she going to definently turn out black? I see some greyish colored fluff in there as well.

    JB a few of my pullets have some darker color on the legs. Not solid dark, but one had some darker 'lines' down the front of her legs and some have a few darker spots on the legs. Most are yellow, or yellow-ish

    Justin, here is an example of Lucy with the mottling/lines on her legs, this pic is at a weird angle -her crest looks huge here but it is really not that large
