    That yellow legged bird in the very first pic...that is a VERY red face for a bird that age. Unless she's just going to be an early layer. Can't see the comb but that's a red face for such a young bird if it was a pullet. I've only had a few Buff Orp's but their legs were almost white, not bright yellow.

    Ok, so if she/he is not an Orphington, then what would it be? These are our first chickens so we don't know alot about them.....
