    So I have one buff orpington that is 13 weeks old and I am not sure on the sex. The other pic of the black chicken was supposed to be a cream legbar, (seller swore there was no way the breeding stock was intermixed). As soon as chick hatched, I knew it was NOT a cream legbar. Any ideas on what breed this one is? So my two questions: what gender is the buff, and what breed is the black chicken? Thanks so much.

    They are both pullets. Not sure what the black one is.

    I was thinking they were both pullets. I cannot for the life of me figure out the breed of the black on though. Thanks for the reply.

    The body does look like some sort of leg bar.

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I to have bought lied about breeds. [​IMG]

    Yours appear to be pullets. On the second one, I'm guessing mixed breed. Did it hatch out of a blue egg?

    The egg did look like a cream legbar egg. It was blue. Definitely not a cream legbar chicken though!

    Can we get a better pic of the Orpginton? A closer profile shot, please.

    The black bird is a pullet, and you'd probably have to e-mail the seller a pic and see what mix she is.

    The black has some qualities of a Jersey Giant......
