    I noticed that my Buff Orpington roo's legs aren't the same color as my girls.

    Please excuse this poor description:

    Legs seem to be correct size. The whole leg is pink besides to red lines on the inside and out side.

    Can you tell me if this is a typical trait of the Buff Orpington rooster? Suddenly I'm thinking that he is not full Orp. Which really makes me mad! [​IMG]

    Found this picture of a "Buff Orp roo" on google images. Is this the correct coloring of the Buff Orps legs? That's what Frosty's looks like but more of a darker pink down the inside and outside.

    The Buff roo back left. Again that's not a picture of my roo.
