    I ordered 4 white rocks from MPC, they are about 12 days old today. I just noticed that one of them has green legs. Does that mean it's not really a white rock? If not, what is it?

    Maybe you can post a pic. Rocks should have yellow legs. maybe EE?

    You need more of those, breed for "blue" in the legs, and market them as a new strain of American Bluefoot chickens! Big money in those for gourmet restaurants. Feeding them milk is supposed to make the meat delicious, too.

    Just an idea [​IMG]

    Thanks Raindrop! She's only 2 weeks old, but I'll bet she will look like that in the near future. One of the odd things about her though, is the green doesn't go all the way out to her toes, it goes out about 1/3 of the way.
