    They look quite odd for White Rocks but if they are from a Hatchery I guess anything is possible!

    VERY PRETTY!

    I am sorry I failed to mention they are 5 weeks old. I purchased them from a local feed store, they said they came from cackle hatchery.

    Quote:I got mine from the local feed store also mine are about 5 weeks old also

    What day did you get them? I think I got mine the 20th of April. so mine are maybe 4 and 1/2 weeks old not sure how long they was at the feed store though.

    Can you get a picture of their legs, I was told mine were white leg horns at first till I showed them here on BYC they told me they ar Cornish x

    Yes, they look like hatchery white rock chicks. I have had them before, they look like a dirty/sooty white color, especially the head. They may be too young to sex at this time. I have found that by 7 weeks or so my white rock cockerels will show their red/big comb. If it stays pale they should be pullets. Of course, thats just what I have noticed. Again I am by far no expert. Keep us posted as they grow!!!
