    Yes, buff orps only have white/pink shanks. Sounds like he's a buff rock...

    Pictures would be needed to confirm this.

    It could be a buff mincora (sp?). Does it have white earlobes and a leghorn type build?

    Maybe a buff leghorn then? They are not common, but somebody on here thought they had a buff orp until it started laying white eggs.
