    i bought these little sweeties at tractor supply when they were just 3 days old and they were in a bin marked Buff Orpingtons...but seeing the leg color in one so yellow i was thinking maybe she is something else? or a rooster? not really sure. any help would be great :) they will be six weeks old this sunday.

    I think the one with the yellow legs maybe a Buff Rock since Buff Orpingtons normally have pale/pinkish legs.

    It's also possible that they just don't conform to the SOP. Hatchery chicks always seem to have some differences.

    I have 1 buff orp right now. I am getting some Lavenders in August, exciting! Rocks are pretty good birds to if it ends up not being an orpington.

    Anyways, seeing how they turn out and the adventures of guessing along the way is tons of fun for me.
