    I've got two (had three but one disappeared) in my miniature flock (bantams) I inherited from the original owners. I don't think they are buff orps as they are a bit lighter but am thinking possibly brahmas?

    They look like Red Sexlinks, even the rooster.

    Brahmas have pea combs and feathered legs. Leghorns have white ear lobes. These birds are, as most have said, sex links.
