    I just got this rooster he is about 6 months old and his legs are yellow. The rest of my BO legs are white. Is he a pure breed? If not, does anyone know what he is.

    Could be a Buff Rock; they look similar.

    Me, neither, but so many people have received Buff Rocks when they ordered Buff Orps, that it seems a distinct possibility.

    Ok now I am confused I have a Bo that has yellow legs also does that mean she is a mix or a Buff Rock? Is there much difference between the two breeds?

    Buff Orpingtons have white legs....

    A mix can have yellow or a Buff rock have yellow ....

    I think the buff rocks are a more slender bird ...correct me if I'm wrong...

    His legs are so yellow compared to my white legged BOs. His beak is also more yellow. He is huge for 6 months. Well, compared to my BO 13 wk Caesar. [​IMG] I was told he was purchased from McMurray Hatchary.

    Oh, yeah, I also really dusted him with DE when he got home. I inspected really good for any "little friends" and he passed my test. That is why he is a little lighter, he is dowsed with DE. [​IMG]
