. I was told this was a Buff Orpington rooster, but I think he may have some Rhode Island Red in him because of the black in his tail feathers. Can anyone confirm this one way or the other?

He's not a buff Orpington, they're a gold shade not this red. The white legs show he could have some Orpington blood (white skin tends to be dominant over yellow, which is what Reds have). His shade could easily be a Red x Orpington mix, they come out with this orange look a lot of the time.
