    This isn't the best pic but its the earliest one I have. The three that are a month old are all BO's but in the middle of them you can see a little fluffball that is a day old BO. Here is a pic of her on her own a few days later:

    Now compare her to this day-old RIR

    I have buff's and new hampshire red and they looked at look alike as chicks but as they got older the new hampshire red started turning more strawberry blonde and the buff's a pretty golden blonde and at 10 weeks old my new hampshire red is a very pretty red and my orps are a very pretty blonde

    The last photo looks like my rhode island red chicks. I am new to all of this-but that is exactly what mine look like. HTh!

    My RIR's had bars on their first wing feathers and from what I can see of Buff orpington babies theirs come in solid red.
