    White Giant legs are considered "willow" colored. They are greenish in color with the bottom of the feet being yellow. They are very beautiful animals!!

    This a white giant chick, for sure. They start out darker than other white chicks (mine were almost black) and then feather out white. Their legs are also dark like that chick's. Gorgeous birds!
