Leg Color

I have a question on leg color...

While a bright clear yellow is easy to identify, I am curious about what people are calling willow.  It seems some of mine are whitish, but then others are the same whitish, but with a cast of yellow which ends up being a greenish yellow color.  Where I grew up (in NY) we had lots of willow trees and their branches were a greenish yellow.  So is the greenish yellow color willow?  I think I have been mistakenly calling all the non-yellow ones willow, but as they get older to me there is a distinction.  If so what is the whitish color called?  (Sorry for all the non-technical color names!  haha)

Re: Leg Color

The EO''s have four different leg colours.  yellow the desired colour, willow(yellow skin with dark underneath, white and blue(white skin with dark underneaths it).
Here's a discussion on it from last year where I had similar questions to you.
