Spring 2011 my mom randomly bought me some chicks(for sale at our local feed store), brought them home, we set up a little area in our bathroom etc. Three breeds, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, and Silver laced Wyandottes. Three of each... Anyhow, the Buff Orpingtons really do not look anything at all like Buff Orpingtons. Since I didn't buy the chicks I didn't know, but I asked her and she says the sign said Buff Orpingtons. Therefore, I've finally brought myself to ask the question on BYC, hoping some people could tell me. The feedstore chicks weren't exactly "top quality" in appearance, except for my Wyandottes, which happened to be the largest chickens I have when they should be the smallest(?). Here's one of my Buff Orpington hens, note the brownish/gold specks on her wings, but she's the only one with those specks. (I know she's a little roughed up by the tailfeathers and head, along with a couple other of my hens they're getting picked on a little bit...) (different hen from above, not sure how much this "reveals" other than the other hen) They're good layers, lay big brown eggs, and are very docile.
