    I got her about 2 mos. ago and the lady said she was a buff orphington, but when I look at pics, they don't look like her. She is gigantic, soft, very skitish but docile. She laid her 1st egg 3 days ago, a small to medium white, hasn't laid another yet and that 1 was broke in the poop tray. :( She is all white with a few black streaks in the neck and a lil black in the tail. Sry, my camera takes bad pics

    Well she definitely isn't a "buff" anything. I'm not sure if she is orpington, but I don't think they come in white with grey flecks. She is beautiful regardless.

    Definitely not a BO by color. Shaped like an Orp which come in white but they don't lay white eggs. Probably a mix.
    What color are the legs and skin? How many toes?

    Maybe Dorking, Hamburg or Holland. Too heavy for a Minorca or Leghorn.

    Duh, I didn't read the part about the white eggs. Nope, definitely not buff or orp. I agree with the above poster about possibilities.
