    You're not telling us old timers anything we don't know.That feather legged bird also has yellow legs. There is a cochin close up in the family tree.

    How many birds are you planning on? For a large breed like orps you wont want many with a chicken tractor unless it is a big one.

    Pale in buff coloring or pale in comb? The one in the picture has the reddest coloring, which is why I was curious. I have a few that are not as dark in Buff coloring as her, they look closer to actual buff.

    The pullet has the correct face color skin for a healthy chick. When birds are too pale in the face compared to their hatch mates, you can suspect parasites, either internal, or external.

    No more than ten total. I was thinking 3 Buffs, 3 Red Stars, and 3 Australorp. If I build a tractor, it will definitely be a large one.
