    I thought this was a black star but the legs are not yellow. They are more blackish grey. Also it is getting so much copper/gold on. Any quesses? She is from MM Hatchery.

    Looks like how all of my black stars always looked. I have never seen a blackstar with yellow legs before, mine always had black/grey legs. I even had a blackstar hen that was almost completely red, she looked awesome, every feather with red edge, then black and then red in the center.

    I'm pretty sure its not an EE. My 4 EEs all have green legs. Also this one has a straight comb not a pea comb like the EEs.

    I hope its a black star. I had no idea they could have so much red/brown in them. Thx for the input.

    I am not good at figuring out the babies so I won't even try a guess! Very nice colors coming in though!
