    Is a chicken with yellow feet more rare than a chicken with white feet

    I think it depends on the actual breed of the chicken and not just the color of their feet. Some are supposed to have yellow feet, some are supposed to have white feet, and some have one color on the top and another color on the bottom ...so I think defining rarity by the foot color isn't normally done (unless a chicken has neon hot pink feet of course, that would be quite rare indeed).

    I'm new to chickens!! So I'd wait for a "chicken expert" to come along before listening to me. [​IMG]

  3. Haha, your spot on.

    For example, I can name 2 breeds off thetop of my head that have yellow legs (cochins, BRs,), both are 110% common. I can also name 2 breeds that have white legs (Dominiques, I believe, and brahmas, I think) both are also 110% common, so the leg color has NOTHING to do with rarity :D
