    Thanks for the info. Mt Healthy had to change the date of my shipment of EEs (granted it was 3 years ago) since they had a short hatch. Thus, my assumption on all their breeds.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but, this makes me think that one of the parent stock was no pure. By any chance was both of the green legged chicks pullets?
    White Leg breed crossed with a Yellow leg breed will result in all offspring having White legs.

    Quote:That's interesting as TSC was selling them as sexed pullets. May need some money back. I got 47 of them.

    I know for sure the one with the dk green is almost a black green and yes it is a pullet. But I was checking at night with a flashlight. I couldn't find the other one. I'll try tomorrow to see if I can find one with a hint of green.
