This is a Buff Orpington, correct?
it appears to be some version of a buff orpington, yes.
Yes, that is a Buff Orpington.
Mine are a bit darker, but perhaps it's because mine are younger.
Yup, that's a Buff Orpington.
How old is it?
She is about two and a half.
I may be totally wrong, and I have very limited experience, but the feathering, comb and shape does nit look like an orpington to me.
She just looks far too streamlined and not poofy enough, if this makes sense. Perhaps over the pond you have different orps, but I would say she is mixed with something else.
And that comb is huge and pointy! For comparrison:
She's actually a pretty standard example of a hatchery grade BO - they are nothing like the traditional orpington - or those produced by serious breeders working to the SOP, but that is true of pretty much every breed anymore -- it's a matter of quantity over quality with mass produced birds.
