    I think the hatchery may have made a mistake MVIMG_20180320_151016.jpg this chick is supposed to be a Buff Orpington, but to me she seems too dark. Am I just overreacting? This is my first go around with this breed. She is three weeks old tomorrow if that helps.

    Yep, she's definately not a BO. My guess is Red Star AKA Red Sexlink and a bunch of other names. They're great layers though and mine greet me whenever I go out the backdoor.

    In any case, I'm just glad all these new chicks are happy and healthy. Thanks for all the input.

    Yeah, my buff orpingtons were the classic yellow chick color. Not a single other color on them.
