    Rock vs Orp. I have a splash roo and a blue roo. I cant remember who is who. I know Rocks are smaller than Orps, but are there any other signifigant differences? I think they are both Orps, am I right?

    Quote:I'd probably post pics, people could just tell you. Without really knowing the breeds, orpingtons were always more fluffy to me with white legs, while rocks are a little less fluffy with yellow legs, but that isn't exactly saying that'd help you any. Perhaps someone who knows the two breeds can come along and see the post.

    Quote:Not sure if this applies to all colors, but Rocks have yellow legs and Orps have white/whitish pink.

    Did you look at the bottoms of their feet?

    Just from the pictures it looks like the splash has yellow feet to he would be the rock.

    Blue Orps and black Orps have slate/black legs. Buff and White Orps have white legs. All have white skin. Rocks have yellow skin and legs. I agree that the splash pictured is a Rock.
