I bought 3 Buff Orpington pullets back in early April. They are now about 6 1/2 weeks old. However, one is much larger and sports a beard and greenish legs. Was there an Ameraucana in the woodpile? Photo to follow.
I got them from a local feed store who bought a mess of Buff Orps from a breeder in Texas. They also had ameraucanas in a different cage. When I asked them about this bird they were surprised. No one else had called in about them.
I did some research and you are right. I guess those green legs are a give away. He's just and Easter Egger that got mixed up with the Orpingtons at the hatchery. Well he is cute, we'll how he behaves when he gets a little older. thanks!
