heavy breed- straight run- bin

So, the lady at the feed store said very confidently that she could pick out the buff orpingtons. I'm getting the feeling that may not be so. Help me out guys! Is there any way this is an orpington? If not, what is it?

I'm not sure, I would wait until it feathered out more.

Well, thanks for responding anyway.

definitely no, likely a New Hampshire or light colored Rhode Island/Production red. Does it have a single comb or a pea comb?

Too dark of feathers to be a Buff Orpington. I would say it is likely a New Hampshire Red or another red laying breed.

 

Here are some pictures to compare.
