    Do all BO's have white legs? I just got 3 BO pullets and 1 has yellow legs, she is also larger than the other two. all are supposed to be the same age. matter of fact they all are supposed to be 13 wks but all are different sizes.

    They're supposed to have white legs. . . . But, flaws happen in hatchery stock. [​IMG] It might just be a Sex link?

    Quote:Yes, all buff "orpingtons" have white legs, that is breed standard (for buffs and whites). Your yellow legged pullet is a buff rock "plymouth rock". [​IMG]

    You either just have a hatchery stock BO with a flaw or a buff rock. [​IMG]

    In hatchery stock, what's really the difference with exception to the leg color?​

    Not a thing, in there eye breed two Single Comb Buff chickens (no matter the breed or breeds) together and if it has Yell legs it's a Plymouth Rock if it has White it is a Orpington.

    Yes, but in "hatchery stock" you see so many more.
