    I was told they were Buff Orps.. but they arent as cuddly looking as i expected... they just dont look right... but these are younger birds..
    The first picture is of a Hen... who hasn't yet laid, but is due to really soon...
    the second and fourth are pictures of the rooster... who i haven't heard crow yet...
    and the third is a very young pullet...
    Are these really buff orpingtons?

    Yes, they are Buff Orpingtons. They don't look as "plump" as mine do, but that could be their age. How old are they?

    They look a lot like my Buff Orps, which are twelve weeks old, so I'd guess about that age.

    BO don't fluff out until about 5 months of age. By then you will really start to notice their feather "girth." [​IMG]

    They look a little like mine but mine are only 6 weeks old.
