Thank you!

It looks like a Buff Orpington in the pictures. Does it have a single comb?

We got her from our local farm store. They get chicks from hatcheries, but the ones that don't sell go out into a pen and get older and are sold as hens. So there are all different breeds in the pen. I thought she looked like a Buff Orpington but I also thought she looked like a Buff Plymouth Rock.

Buff Rocks have yellow skin. Orpingtons have white/pink skin.

She looks to have white/pink skin, so I'm thinking Orpington. Hatchery birds often have a darker collar and tail. It's not a desirable trait from my understanding, but they're fine backyard birds.
