    We bought some chicks from tractor supply. The guy seemed positive these were buff Orpingtons and they sold as pullets. Looking at pictures online I'm wondering if they were mixed up because they weren't marked. Please help! Want to make sure I know what I'm working with. Can post more pictures out of heat lamp if needed!

    That's not a buff Orpington. Looks more like an Easter egger or ameracauna to me. The buff Orpington would be all yellow.

    Tractor supply is horrible about mixing up the chicks they have. I bought 10 supposedly Cornish cross chicks for meat and they turned out to be white Plymouth rocks. All were pullets so I wasn't too upset because they were a lot cheaper lol

    Darn, I knew it! Thank you for the reply! Oh well, the kids will be excited. Wish I could find a better place than tractor supply in Hobbs, NM!

    X2 or X3 on Easter Egger.

    She should lay (objectively) prettier eggs and possibly come into lay faster though!

    The yellow ones don't look to be EE either ... Leg coloring usually greenish & down brownish. Not sure what you got, what other breeds did TSC have in when you got yours.
