    How can you tell the difference between Buff Orpington hens and buff Rock hens?
    I have two that are that color but I am unsure of breed. I will try to get some good pictures tomorrow.

    If you have comparison pics that would be great.

    Plus Rocks are solid, denser birds. Orpingtons should look like fluff balls, esp with poofy bums.
