Are these true Orpington's, or Wynandotte crosses?

    I just picked up 4 lovely ladies. I was told they were orpingtons, except 1 Wynandotte. However upon looking at them all I'm not sure which is the Wynandotte...my buff Orpington has a large comb, but the other 3 have very small combs.

    The only one that looks to be remotely close to being a true blue Orpington is pic one the chicken in the back. The others seem to have characteristics of other breeds in them!

    Thanks...That's what i was thinking...I was told the red girl was a buff orpington...and that the grey was a blue black orpington...

    So I was guessing the blackish and whitish gal was the Wynandotte...I am thinking they are a cross between those two breeds...2 can be pretty snarly with the other chickens depending if it is a lower or higher chicken in rank

    This one is the Wyandotte. Blue laced red?

    What gorgeous birds you have! Is the black and white a mix? Look at those breast feathers! So beautiful.....
