    i know he looks pretty yellow there but he does have darker brown coming in down the back. the flash kind of made him lighter LOL

    I would give it a few days and see what kind of wing feathers start to develop. by looking at the first picture it almost looks like it has tuffs on the cheeks. but my bo's were super fluffy. I would say between the two breeds, probably buff with all that fluff. but if it was dropped off at the vet. there is no telling what mix it could be. good luck!

    BO's are supposed to have white/pink feet. Mine had pink toes at that age and now it is 6 weeks old and its legs and feet are very white.
    Does that one have yellow toes or is it the pic? If yellow then probably not a BO.
    Sex links do have yellow feet. Mine is my best layer, she lays an egg a day every day, has only missed one day since she started laying in January.

    I don't think it is a red sex link, I would have say BO or maybe EE but its legs are yellow and not slate like and EE so and both my BO have white legs. you might have to wait until its big feathers come in and see then. I will say that is a super cute chick.

    my little guy looked JUST LIKE the buff orp's the local feed store had. some im hoping its that lol. i picked up a amerucana (i know i butchered the spelling) and a golden laced wyandotte. i made friends with the people there and let me buy 2 instead of 6 because i explained i already have 8 7 week old silkies and a 8 week old duckling lol. ill post pics of the new babies later!. maybe we can take guesses on the color the amerucana will be!
