    That's what I thought at first but the color is too light.

    The first feathers are lighter, they darken as the bird get's older. All my buffs started with cream/ whitish feathers, that darkened later.
    what color are the legs?

    Found some pictures of buff plymouth rock chicks, and they look just like yours.
