    i purchased what i thought to be buff orpingtons from tractor supply in april a have 8 all together. a few weeks ago i noticed that all but two have real dark yellow legs and the other two have light pink legs. i think that the two with lighter legs are buff orps? but i dont know much about how to tell the difference in between them. any help would be great. Thanks, i will post pictures later if that would help more.

    yellow legs are buff rocks and white-ish/pink-ish legs are buff orps!

    I would just like to say that Buff Orp's have the prettiest feet in the poultry world.
