    So i bought 2 pullets from a heavy assorted pullet bin thinking there were buff orps. When i got home i noticed one had a dark spot on its head so over the next 3 weeks know ive been watching it grow and the buff color is there but so is this dark strips on its wings. The pic above was taken when she was about 2 weeks old i will try to get some wing shots tomorrow. So what are some buff colored chickens out there that my baby could be?
    2 thoughts a buff catalana or a Buff Minorca, do they have extra coloring as a baby? She has a single comb so what is she? Any ideas or pics of possibility will be great

    I don't think it's Buff at all. I'm thinking maybe Production Red, or Gold Sexlink?

    Ok tomorrow i can put more pics on im about ready to go over on my usage and it resets tonight.
    I ran out to the barn and had a look at her she is a golden color or a buff color compared to the 2 golden sexlinks i got i have a new hampshire she is redder then the mystery chick. Looking at her wings the black runs the length of her feather quail i think is what its call [​IMG] with a few spots going away from the middle Also she is getting tail feathers and there also getting the black spots. Also both of my gold sex links have white wing tips then a dark brown strip and white strips going up there wing she does not have that pattern at all. Thank Txmom for the help
