One of my buff orpingtons started limping this morning. She’s favoring the leg and doesn’t want to put weight on it. We have gotten a lot of rain recently, and their coop was muddy for a while, but they got let out everyday to dry off, and the ground is now dry. Could it be Bumblefoot? Or just a hard tumble?

Doesn’t look like bumblefoot to me. Chickens are silly things, they jump off of the coop roof, off of roosts, and other high places and can hurt themselves. It’s possible that she hurt her le jumping off of something. Most likely it will be ok and heal on its own.
