    CCDE271F-9636-4C2B-8514-BB7D3DB469F8.png I acquired this 3 year old rooster, was told it was a Golden Buff (Comet cross) and I am new to chickens but a little search shows that it looks more like a Buff Orpington (BO). Can someone with more experience and knowledge confirm this and by the spur length, does 3 years old look right?

    Looks like a buff Orpington to me. Does look to be 3 or older by the spurs. He's definitely mature looking.

    Yes, I would say Buff Orpington. I have a two year old BO rooster and they could be twins!! He's absolutely beautiful!
