    Hey guys, I have a few chickens sold to me as Buff orphingtons. The one in this picture is a rooster. Just wondering, is my assumption correct? Is he an orphington? I can get more pics if needed. Thanks!

    EDIT: Here is a better Pic:

    buff can come in several different shades, but he does look more "red" than the buffs I've seen, also his body shape is off for an orpington (some hatchery type orps have "off" body shapes) he does have the right leg color

    He looks like one to me. I have orpingtons and he appears to be one. The roos are more of a red color than the hens, with even more red in the tail feathers.

    He is an orp. He may not be the best quality though,since he's redder than any pure orps I've seen. [​IMG]
