Besides the leg and skin color differences.The Orpington is much more fluffy or loose feathered.There is is big difference between good Rock shape (type) and Orpington shape.This is when bred up to the standard for shape,size width,etc. Hatchery stock the shape ,size,etc. are apt to be nothing like they are suppose to be and may be similar or intermediate;not good representaives of their breed.
