    Here is a better shot of our two white chicks they are 7 weeks old and happy in the coop. I stuck the camera in the little door and they have learned to roost just fine. I was wondering if anyone had an idea as to what type of breed the white ones are. When we bought them they were listed as managers choice....[​IMG][​IMG]

    With skinny legs like that, they look very leghorny to me.

    Are those gray speckles around their necks?? If so they look like
    Delaware hens to me. All my leghorns are smaller, thinner, and have more
    pronounced combs.


    Leghorn crosses at 3 weeks (2 in the middle):

    Actually the speckles are from them running into wet paint. I tried to keep them out of one area of coop and they walked into wet paint.

    Legs, like SC said look Leghorn but the combs and bodies don't. They should be
    a popular breed so they most likely are Leghorns.

    Here's another pic of a LH that came from Meyers hatchery. She is around 5 weeks
    here.

    They look just like my leghorn chicks.
