    I am just wondering if there is a way to tell the difference between a Buff Rock, and Buff orpington at about 2 weeks old, leg color or ? Thank you in advance.

    Rocks have yellow legs, Orpingtons have a pale greyish pink.

    I am pretty sure Buff Orpingtons have White Eggs and Buff Rocks have Yellow Eggs

    I have a brown egg layer mix, they are 2 weeks old, and my buff colored ones have light orange legs I believe, so I will guess that makes them buff rocks? Maybe I can get a pic.

    Your little one is very cute!

    [​IMG] okay my turn ... our little ones are just over 4 weeks old now. Supposed to be buff orpingtons ... according to hatchery.
    I keep reading about leg color, etc and I'm afraid I may not have bo's, either.

    Any thoughts?

    I just saw your post, but wanted to let you know that my little one did have yellow or orangish legs and they are getting lighter and lighter so now I think they may be Opingtons after all. [​IMG] However either way nice little chicks.
