    Does anyone have any pictures of baby Buff Orpingtons? I have 7 that were rescued and was told they look like BO..any pictures to compare would be great..any baby Roo pictures would be great also! I am thinking this little one is a BO roo..very thick legs!!

    Sweet! I have 2 BI's and unfortunately no pic's but I can say these do look like Oprah and Buff(roo) did at that age. Buff was always bigger than Oprah so we were suspicious of he was a roo. Good luck with your chicks!

    Are the legs yellow or pink? If they are yellow, it's not an orpington.

    And it's a little roo [​IMG]

    Could be a Buff Rock if it's legs are yellow and it looks like a cockerel.

    The legs are pale...not bright yellow...but very thick. I will have to take pictures of all 7 of them to see if you can tell me wether they maybe pullets or roos...kind of thinking all roos..and that is why they were all thrown away together...but not sure?[​IMG]

    The one in the front is a roo, the other 2 pullets. Maybe not so obvious in this picture, but at 5 months you can tell now!
