I ordered 25 Russian Orloffs and got 30 chicks. One is not an Orloff. It has feathered legs and is a different coloration. Can you tell what it is?

This may sound completely ridiculous, but is it not a faverolle cockerel?

that was my first thought. But that is just too crazy to be a coincidence. I only have two breeds, Russian Orloffs and a hen and roo pair of Salmon Faverolles. So to accidentally get another fav is just amazing.

That is why I said I thought it would be ridiculous :gig

Yeah.. I do think it is a Faverolles. It has 5 toes, feathered legs, the colour, the size.. Going with that assumption. You got lucky!!!
