    d'Uccles...are their whole shanks featherd, or just their feet? What color are their eggs?

    Leghorns...they lay white eggs, right?

    Cochins...they're still in the developmental stage, yeah?

    Anything else?

    edit: typos and stuff.

    d'Uccles have vulture hocks and feathers down their legs, but not as much as a cochin. They lay off white eggs.

    The leghorns are supposed to lay white eggs, but may lay a bit off white egg with the coloration variation. (one of my leghorns lays an off white egg)

    I have Mille Fleur Old English Game Bantam chicks right now [​IMG] I'm hoping to get a couple girls and might be able to keep a roo so I can sell some eggs this/next year. I love the color Mille Fleur!!!

    What is a "vulture hock"? I've read something about this being undesirable in the Marans standard and even with a photo illustration I still didn't quite understand what they were trying to show.

    What color egg does an OEGB lay?
