Buff Orpington question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all, our Buff Orpington is on the smaller side compared to the other two (Black Sex Link and an Isa Brown). Also, she has some black spots on her feathers. Wondering if this is normal? Either way, she has my heart, I just want to make sure she's healthy.

I think BOs are a breed that are slower to develop.

Thank you Chicken Girl1! It's good to know there's no worries with her being smaller than the others :D

Any thoughts on the black spots on her feathers? I could try and take a better picture but they move so fast! LOL!

I'm pretty sure that it normal also, as it grows older it will "grow out of it" kinda of like how RIRs are speckled when they are younger and first growing feathers.
