    Is buff used to describe the bird as a large breed or does it describe the beige color of the chicken?

    Buff is a color, not a healthy robust size.

    I dunno Ridgerunner. My Buff Orpington Rooster is pretty Buff. You should see the hens flock to him when he comes through the barnyard. [​IMG]

    But for the OP's question, Buff when describing a chicken refers to color, not size.
