    Are these three buff orppingtons? I ordered 2 buff orps and a meal maker and while one is a tad darker they are identical. Buff in color, no markings whatsoever and orange legs and feet. [​IMG]

    I'd wonder if the darker one isn't a red sex link, the BOs are usually a little golder color and the RSLs a little more reddish.

    Thanks, I think you are right. She is definitely more red which is what caught my eye at first. Then I started questioning it and convinced myself she was another buff.

    Looks like a Red Sex-Link to me, too.

    Thanks. I guess it's time to do some reading up on them

    I am not much help, I will just comment;
    I just received a shipment from Meyer's and I ordered 15 'surprise rainbow pullets' I also ordered some Golden Buffs aka sexlinks from them. My Golden Buffs are yellow with a chipmunk type stripe of gold/brown.
    I got some that look like the two on the left too. So maybe I got buff orps?

    Red Sex-link, probably.
