    Hello this is my hen roger , I named her before I found out she was a girl and the name just stuck haha. At first I thought she was a buff Orpington but her feathers are darker than an Orpington, I've heard from people she's a buff Orpington Rhode Island Red mix but I'm not sure[​IMG]

    she looks like a buff orpington to me, I have 2 of them and one has darker feathers the other lighter, i think its just slight color variations in feather color. either that.. which i think is right, or she could be a golden sex link! they look similar!

    I don't think it's a golden sexlink...I have one and it is way more reddish than that and has definite white tail and wing feathers. I had a BO also and she was more golden color and didn't have such dark head and neck feathers. I am completely stumped with this one. LOL I guess it could be a BO just with darker feathers.

    I think she's just a really poor quality orp. My buff orp x RIR were WAY darker than that, much more of a vibrant orange color with black in their tails and some had black in the hackles.

    Ok thanks. She's still a pullet hasn't even laid an egg yet, she used to have dark brown tail feathers but my rooster pulled them out and not all of them have grown back yet
