    I got these guys from a friend this past summer, and I have no idea what they are. I'm almost 100% sure they are pullets.
    They haven't changed color yet, so I don't know if they're always gonna be a white-ish color?

    Their all girls and yes they will be staying white, as far as breed the only thing they are reminding me of is my White Leghorn/ Easter Egger crosses:

    Yes they will probably stay white. Does the chicken in the first picture have pink/white legs? (that's what it looks like in the photo). If so it is probably a white orpington.

    The other ones with the yellow legs are probably white leghorns. Do they have single combs?

    Really? Wow! You read my mind! That would make total sense! I thought they were some sort of a leghorn mix.

    There were a bunch of EE's where I got them from. And maybe a leghorn or two! Thanks!

    Anyone else?

    The other two look like twins. They look like they have a pea comb. And they have yellow legs.

    I noticed that one of them has yellow ears? What does that mean?

    The ones with pea comb and yellow legs are probably your EE/leghorn crosses then.

    I really don't know about yellow ears - hopefully someone else will be able to answer that.

    I thought of at least one of them looking like my white orpington hens

    So, possible mixes would be: EE, Leghorn, and White Orp?

    We have a "dirty" looking white hen, her feathers have a dusting of tan on them, you had to get close to realize it was color not dirt. Although this past molt she, her new feathers came in white with a tan lacing. She is 4 years+ old now.

    Her dad was a light colored EE and her mom was a "Red Star" or brown sex link.
