    Well...I ORDERED a Buff Orpington from the hatchery, but then I read on a thread here that sometimes they send you a Buff Rock instead and that you can tell by the color of their legs....white = Buff Orpington and yellow = Rock. I have a feeling that I'm just clinging to denial of what the answer is going to be, so here are three photos of my Buff (who is very sweet and I shouldn't even CARE which she is, right?[​IMG]....whadd'ya think...Orpington or Rock?

    Well, yellow legs say Rock. Either that or a Buff Orp with another breed in its ancestry somewhere.

    So it wasn't just my imagination...her legs DO really look yellow, don't they?

    I say she is a rock. Call the hatchery and tell them you ordered buff orps instead you got buff rocks and you know this because your chickens have yellow legs. They will refund your money or give your acct a credit.

    I totally agree. It is a Buff Rock. Looks just like mine.
