    Ok I got a Buff Orpington from Ideal poultry but it's legs are bright yellow. Orps are not suppose to have yellow legs correct? It looks like a buff orp in every other way. See here for pics of her with her two australorp buddies. She is 5 weeks old now. Would she be a mix if her legs are yellow?

    Just scroll down to the end of the entry and you will see her pics. Her wing is over her australorp pal [​IMG]

    White for Buff Orpingtons. She could be a Buff Plymouth Rock-they have yellow legs and look similar.

    They should be pinkish white on a BO.

    UGH! Why is it I have problems with orps!? [​IMG] Every orp I have had so far has YELLOW legs. [​IMG] I guess I'm going to have to do all my ordering from BYC from now on. These legs are SO yellow that they practically glow! I'm kind of upset...I ordered a buff orp and I think I should have gotten a buff orp. I wonder if others have had this prob?

    With yellow legs you could have a Buff Plymouth Rock.

    I just got 13 BO's from Ideal (via a local feed store). 2 are yellow legged, good to know why.

    Thanks to the board oldtimers and mods for tirelessly answering our same newbie questions day in and out!! I am learning so much from this board.
