    Every year i've noticed a few of my cornish cross have white legs. This batch of 200 all have white legs! Has anybody else noticed this? I thought maybe they would change with age but i have a suprise party planned for them wednesday morning [​IMG]. And they're still white
     
  2. I am surprised. All of my Cornish X's have had yellow legs.

    Some strains of CX have white/cream colored legs and some have yellow. The hatchery I use gets both, and it's not unusual for me to get both in the same shipment. I have not been able to tell a significant difference in two.
