    Look like buffs to me, are all their legs pinkish looking?

    there sure is a lot of white feathering.my newly hatched (4 week olds now) never showed so much white OR dark brown during feathering,more like a nice golden color

    Here is a shot of all their feet. We were also told they were females, keeping our fingers REALLY crossed for that![​IMG]

    I don't think those are buffs - buff legs are white and when they feather in - they are more "blond" than rust colored with no white feathers.

    If their legs are as yellow as they look in the picture they aren't buff orpingtons. Buff Orps have white/pinkish legs. They could be buff rocks. They are cute though! Their legs can kind of lighten up a little but not that much (I don't think) I like the leg shot. [​IMG]

    They look like my gold sexlink pullets. They dont look anything like buff orps to me, they should be buff, not red and white.

    I dont think so...the legs are the wrong color, and the feathers should be more like marmalade.

    Their feathers look a little too red to be Buffs. Maybe some sort of red hybrid? Wrong leg color too, my Buffs have always had pearly white colored legs.
