    Quote:I think your rooster is a Buff Orpington, or a BO X NH -- he's definitely not purebred NH. New Hampshires have yellow skin and legs, and your rooster has white legs. He's very pretty, though.

    And I haven't seen anyone else mention this, so I will -- the name of the breed is NOT "New Hampshire Red," it's just "New Hampshire." Just in the interest of accuracy, LOL!

    Actually he does have yellow skin... The picture does look like he has white skin though...
    Im sure he isnt pure bred new hampshire but i know he doesnt have any BO in him.
    Edited to add: I think it might be the sun shining on him and the picture is somewhat blurry which is why it looks like he has white skin...
