    Hey guys, so I have 2 BO. One has white legs, the other has yellow legs. Why and what's the difference? My girl with the white legs has a bigger comb. That's the only difference I see. Need pics?

    Purebred Buff Orpingtons should have white legs. The only difference is genetics: your yellow-legged bird likely is an Orpington mix that has other breeds in her ancestry, or isn't an Orpington at all. Buff Plymouth Rocks are a similar looking breed that has yellow legs.
