    I am not doubting you guys, I am simply asking so I can become more knowledgeable - what are you guys basing your opinions on? (What characteristics)

    Also, what does it mean that one of my BO's has yellow legs? It's not a pure bred?

    White legs = buff orpington

    Yellow legs = buff plymouth rock

    Comb, wattles, neck and tail feathers look like roosters to me.
