    My neighbor said this hen was a Buff Orpington, he doesn't know a lot about chickens but he used to keep them and reckoned he had one just like this. If shes not a Buff Orp. please tell me what breed any way, and im not sure on her age but looks like a POL hen.

    Yeah, it does look dark. It's also way thinner than mine. Orpingtons weigh like 8.5 pounds, this one looks more like 5 or 6. I'm not a chicken expert though, so don't rule out the possibility.

    I agree that she is a Red Sex Link not a Buff Orpington. I have a Buff and my friend has Red Sex Links. Your hen is red not buff. :)

    thanks for the help everyone, i didn't really have any idea but i did think that orps where bigger and they had all those feathers covering their legs.
