Nick it may take a little longer- depends on the crock pot.- just as long as they are tender and hot inside the shell..just check them how and then...

Hi Pat. Thank you for the quick reply. I should have also asked, was it for frozen or thawed legs? Also, what setting would you use? High, medium, or low? Thank you again. Nick.
