    I bought this chick from a breeder at Chickenstock swap event and I've been told she/he was a Splash but it doesnt look like any of the Splash chicks on google.
    (btw pics were taken in the shade so true color is kind of distorted)

    It is definately a splash. You can tell by the yellow and grey splotches.

    the leg color can darken/change as they get a little older. Mine looked like they had pinkish yellow legs but as they grew they turned slate.

    Heres another one of the chicks that was bought from a back yard breeder but im pretty sure this one is an EE. I was told it looks like a Cuckoo..
    Her legs are more of a greyish color but again pics were taken in the shade so the color is kind of distorted..
