Are these BOs? They are very different in color than the adult hens I bought and different from another "batch" of Bos I bought at a different supplier. They are much more red-gold than buff and one even has a couple of dark feathers in the tail!

Two of the other group of Buffs to show color difference:

One of each together:

My husband thought Golden Comets, but they don't have any white under feather or any lacing. Whatever they are, they are very sweet natured birds.

I woudld say a red sex link like a comet.
I know that there is a little variety in color with the BO, but they dont have the fluffy enough body shape of a BO.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think you're right about them being roos. They are all just super-sweet boys, so it'll be hard to pick just one to keep.

I keep BO's and those look a little too reddish to me. Compared to the pic you posted of the actual BO's, their body shape is significantly different. Possibly related or sex link?

I'm new here, and this is my first reply by the way
