    Hi there! Well I ordered 5 RIR and 15 Buff Orpingtons, but now that they are getting their feathers in and Im not so sure I got all of my orpingtons. I have 3 that look like regular buffs:

    And the the rest of them look like this:

    What do you think they are? Thanks!

    The second may be an orpington of some type but a Buff it is not.

    Is it a sexlink or a NHR?

    It's not a NHR, they are a color between a buff and a RiR, kinda organish. I would wait a bit longer and see what the coloring comes out as.
