    Saw these at tractor supply today. White chicks with a few black spots. Any idea of what they are?

    Very likely one of the leghorn hybrids - should be good layers.

    California White (California gray crossed with white leghorn) and Austra White(australorp crossed with white leghorn) are common hybrids.

    If you decide to get some, they are excellent layers, and less high strung and flighty than pure Leghorns. :eek:)
