Is this a buff Orpington?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok, so anybody who's been following my crazy saga has seen me go back and forth on what these two little decile are. However, I think I've nailed down what the orange yellowish one is. Is it a buff Orpington??

The legs are yellow so it could be a buff plymouth rock.  Orpingtons typically have pink legs.

I'd have to agree it's probably not a buff orpington- the legs being pink (should be yellow). 

Here are 3 week old pics of confirmed buff orpingtons to compare with your chick:

 

 

20 layers of various breeds, 1 rooster, and four F2 Super Blues- 2 pullets and 2 cockerels at 15 weeks old, and 16 chicks who jumped into my cart at the feed store!

Orpingtons are supposed to have pinkish legs. Your chicks are Buff Rocks. OPs chick is a Buff Orpington, and a little cockerel.

The hatchery they came from doesn't offer Buff Rocks.

Looking back through their chick photos, around 60 days is when the legs lost the yellow and started going pink. 

 

Now as adults they're pinkish legs all the way.

 

Sorry for any confusion to the OP and others nice enough to point out the discrepancy.

 

 

Same chicks from post above, as adults:
