Do blue Orpingtons have slate legs? I thought I’d ask you since you are the the Orp Guru!Agreed that it is a cross. I'm not sure it has Buff Orpington in it though as Orpingtons should have white skin. Genetically white is dominant to yellow so a cross using a Buff Orpington should have produced a bird with white legs.
I hate to say it, but I your ameraucana looks like that... yellow (or green) legs, no muffs or beard etc... then she's an easter egger, not an ameraucana.It looks like my americauna. Feathering and face very similar. I'm new to chickens so no expert. Just thought I would throw that out there. Does she have any fluff around ears?
Haha! Thanks, but I'm far from an expert on them. But yes, Blue, Black, Splash, Chocolate and Lavender Orpingtons have either slate or black legs and feet depending on which variety you're talking about. Some of the patterned Orps may not require white legs, but off the top of my head I know Jubilee, Gold and Silver-laced, as well as Red require white. The Mottled Orpingtons probably don't require white as the varieties are on darker ground colors that do not require it, but I'd have to double check on that.Do blue Orpingtons have slate legs?
