    Can someone tell me from these lousy photo's if I have Orphington's or Rock's? When we bought them from the feed store, they said Orphington. I'm not sure one way or another. What yaw think?

    I can not seem to copy the photo link after I've uploaded a photo. Not sure what is going on or if I've messed with a setting? It "bings" when I try. Only on BYC.

    I'm pretty sure those are Buff Orpingtons with the white legs.

    Both are Orphingtons...very pretty birds you have there, You should be proud. The pearl legs are the give away. Rocks have bright yellow legs.

    Thanks again yaw. Didn't know about the yellow legs on Buff Rocks. Good to know info. [​IMG] Now let's hope some of the eggs I'm incubating on my 2nd attempt tomorrow has some BO's in there. I'd be so pleased. (Can't tell difference between my BO's & Barred eggs)
