    No it's not. A Buff orphington looks like this:

    It's a solid color and you're bird looks more crele like but isn't exactly that either. It's really cool to get birds like that though.

    Maybe a cream legbar (or a cross)?

    Interesting because he came from Murry McMurry as a pure bred but I can't seem to identify it!

    Mixed breed. Orpingtons should have white legs, and this bird has yellow legs.

    If it came from MMM, it's a Dixie Rainbow or Poineer, one of the slow broilers.
