    I bought her has a buff orpington, but she looks very different than my other buff orpington. Could she be a mix? She would also lay a lot more than my other buff orpington. She would lay for a month without skipping a day. DSC00134.JPG DSC00306.JPG
     
  2. She looks like a Buff orpington to me. There could be a possibility of her being a mix, but i don't think so.

    x2. Sometimes chickens of the same breed can differ a little in appearance. She's clearly laying a lot, unlike my Buff :p!

    Sue T unless your BO is muddy, she doesn't have the light colored legs she should have.

    Thread starters bird has weird comb. If hatchery birds, you can't expect them to look like what the SOP expects them to be.

    What do you think is this a Pearl Grey Pencled Brahma chick? The father is a dark Brahma bantum and the mother is a Silky/Brahma Pencled mix. I tried to find out on the internet and this is what it came up as. Your thoughts please?
