    I thought Nugget was a BO rooster, but I'm starting to think maybe he's something else. Any thoughts

    Curious, why do you think he's something else?

    What color are his legs - white/pink or yellow? I think BOs are supposed to have white or pinkish legs.

    They're pinkish. I just questioned whether he was really a BO because he's more reddish than buff.

    Thanks

    Actually he's a more proper Buff color. At least, the photos show it. A lot of hatchery Buff Orps are really pale and kinda washed out looking.

    But, he's pure. Long as his legs are white, he's pure.
