    She'll be 4 weeks old tomorrow. She's supposed to be a buff orphington but she's feathering out white.

    What color are the legs? Not a BUFF orp, but orps come in many colors.

    Not an orpington at all then as orps have white/ pinkish legs. Might be a white rock, maybe a leghorn. Where did you get it from?

    If you notice that this chick is growing alot faster than the rest, you have a cornish cross. Cornish crosses are a meat bird. If you limit the feed and make sure there's room to roam some, the bird could live a good life. It could still be some other breed or a hatchery cross, like a red sex link rooster.

    Thanks for the input. I bought her as a buff orphington but the last week as she's feathering out I began to wonder. Kinda makes me mad but I'll love her just the same. I have 6 other GSL and a Dutch something-or-other, I forget her breed she was labeled as a "heavy layer ".
