    I purchased Buff Orpingtons this spring, but clearly with yellow legs I didn't get what I was supposed to get. Can anyone tell me what breed I actually have here? Thank you. 20170608_173920.jpg

    He is super sweet too, and loves to be held. I'm disappointed I didn't get what I was supposed to get, but we love him.

    I suspect barnyard mix. Color is buff colombian. The closest match is probably a Wyandotte but the comb type is wrong.

    Hoover has a mixed breed dual purpose called "rainbow". Yours looks EXACTLY like one in their stock photos.
