    I would say she's a mix. She's not a pure buff orpington with those dark tail feathers, white around her face, and green legs.

    Hatchery Buff Orpington, light legs and light golden coloring. This one is 5 years old here. Yours may be a BO. I do not see green in the legs but then I am getting old and may not see as well these days.
    I have seen the occasional dark feather in the tails of my group so it does not change my guess that yours could be a BO.

    Mine have darkened some with each molt too. I have others just not any good pics of them.

    might be 100% orpington but mixed colours. I am not an expert, just guessing. it is dark tail feathers and her leg colour that is different from BO.
