    I purchased a rare assortment from ideal poultry and got 3 clean yellow leg that look like buff orpingtons BUT.their eye color is a beautiful pale green! Single comb. What in the world do I have?

    I have a buff orpington with green eyes. Your chick is probably a buff orpington too. :)

    Buff orps are supposed to be white skinned. They could be buff rocks, which are relatively rare from a hatchery. All of my rocks have had green eyes as chicks regardless of feather pattern.

    buff orphingtons have white feet not yellow, with yellow feathers depending on the orphinton type
