    would the wing feathers be an off white at age 1 and a half weeks? The heads are a yellow/light brown and their legs are now turning a grey. My computer isn't allowing me to upload pics at this time. But I am really wondering if I got the right breed.

    Their legs shouldn't be turning gray if they're buff orps.

    what would a grey leg indicate?

    here are my chicks at 10 days old. the two yellow ones on the top are my buff orps. their legs are light yellow. the lighter yellow chick on the bottom is one of my EEs. it has gray legs. they are now almost 3 weeks old, so i'll get some pics today and add those.

    What kind of a comb do they have? Orps should have pinkish legs at this age. They may be EEs if they've got a pea comb and not a single comb.
