    Would a white orphington have blue green grey legs very lite and her comb is very small and short compaired to all the other chickens i have and that is about 35 but she is a big girl with lite grey spots on her back and her under feathers are lite grey also as a chick i thought she would be blue.

    She does not seem to have greenish legs. Her legs look white. Greenish legs would indicate White Jersey Giant (willow-colored legs), but since her beak is also white, then I'm going to have to say White Orpington.

    I went to breeds and looked at the orphingtons and the jersey giant and she looked like the jersey giant to me thanks so much i was clueless I could not get a close up of her to show the spots and the color of the legs well but when i looked at the pictures on here i could tell who she looked like. Thanks again

    OK....going to say this again...she does not have the pigmentation of the Jersey Giant.

    Jersey Giants have yellow skin. So the bird would have a yellow beak or bottom to the leg. Yours has a white beak and white skin.
