I have a buff chick and don't know whether its an Orpington or a Buff Rock!
Quote:leg color, size, feather type. not sure of eye color..
A Buff Orp. has white legs and skin and a Buff Rock has yellow legs/skin.
Thanks!! I'm going to go out and check the legs right now!!
She has white legs!!
Buff Orpingtons have White feed and Buff Rocks have Yellow feet.
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.
