    I was told this is a pure bred buff orpington. This darkness in the feathers has me thinking it might not be though? Any thoughts?

    These are my first chicks. The other buff is a beautiful creamy gold color.

    Doesn't really look like a Buff Orpington to me, but I've never raised them as chicks before.

    Hmm, it looks bearded. Easter Egger maybe (lacking the typical slate or green legs)?

    Do you know what it will look like when it's fully feathered?

    There is absolutely no way to predict what an Easter Egger will look like as an adult. Your's is 'silver', so odds are good that it will look similar to a Light Sussex or Columbian Rock in coloring. But, anything can happen with Easter Eggers.
    The other chick looks buff, but whether it's an Orpington, or another breed can't really be determined until it's a bit older.
