    I've heard that EE's have blue or green legs. Will her legs change color when she's older or is this what they'll be? She's my first EE so I'm really exceited to see how she'll turn out.

    They already look greenish to me. Could be the lighting in the pic, though. Most likely they'll be brownish-green, but some have slate legs. Usually, those are the Ameraucanas, though EEs can have any color leg, really. When you say blue, do you mean slate or really blue? I've never seen any with blue-blue legs.

    Yeah, I mean the blue-y slate-ish color. When she was little she had yellow legs, so I wasn't sure if they would keep changing. I think these pics are a fair representation of what color her legs actually are.

    They look green to me. They'll probably stay that way.
