    My newest buff orp has yellow legs. Does this happen? She's about 10 (?) weeks old or so. The lady I got her from didn't remember how old she was.[​IMG]

    I would say she is a Buff Rock then...I have Buff Orps and they have white or pinkish legs...

    jb.....i recently went through this with my BO as well. Except I ordered mine from MM Hatchery! I have 15 hens, and 2 roos...and of the 15 hens...2 have green legs, one has bright yellow legs. I called the hatchery, and she was surprised. They should have pinkish/whitish legs. No exceptions. ( unless they are mutts) Which the hatchery told me is "impossible" HA! Now I am wondering, what color eggs will they lay!?? LOL

    Deb, I saw a picture once of a Buff Orp crossed with an EE; at least that's what everyone was saying. She did have green legs like yours. Dont recall what color egg she laid, though.

    Thank you everyone. As long as she's a she I'm okay with whatever she is. I looked up buff rocks and they look very similar to buff orps. Green legs huh? Interesting. That I'd like to see.

    Its not a great pic...but you can see, they are green legged. I will try to get a better one, if it stops raining.

    That chicken looks kind of pretty actually, justasnak. I will post some pics of my girls if I can ever figure out how to do it.

    I have 1 six year old buff orp (Hannah), 1 six year old black australorp (Audrey), 1 sixteen week old buff orp (Liza Jane) and 1 ten? week old questionable buff orp/buff rock (Estee, named that because she was delivered to me in a red Estee Lauder box). I had 4 fourteen week old buff orps but 3 of them were roos so had to give them away.[​IMG] That's why I had to add the littlest one.

    MM Hatchery did give me a 12 dollar credit. Not much I can do with 12 dollars....but maybe next year, I might add a few more turkeys! [​IMG]
