    Here is a picture of chicken I have. It was hatched around May 1st.

    I got another chick with it that is definitely a Delaware....

    What is this one. It has a slightly yellow tinge which the camera does not pick up very well.

    The above picture has been slightly brightened to show body type, DO not take color from it.

    She looks like a White Rock to me. The body type and leg color are right for it. The yellow tinge in the plumage can be from too much corn or too much direct sunlight. Some white birds yellow in the sun or if they have diets too heavy on the corn side. Sometimes, some lines of white birds just yellow too much.

    White rock for sure. She has the yellow legs, snow white feathering and single comb.

    Rocks and Delawares are both awesome layers. Lucky you!
