Can you differentiate a white rock and leghorn at 2 weeks?

    I know this is a stretch, and I expect to hear that it can't be done. But just in case there is someone out there that knows some trick-

    So I ordered white rocks and white leghorns, along with other breeds, and last night a rat got into my brooder and killed all but these two. Curious to know if I have leghorns or rocks, or one of each. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    That's what I figured. And I'm guessing they won't really differentiate until about 16 weeks.

    I was thinking somewhere between 6-20 weeks old, but I could be wrong.
