    Hi there. I had posted recently about getting 3 Delaware chicks, supposed to be pullets. They are about 3 weeks and are completely white. They are atarting to get feathers and still no black. The place I got them had white leghorn available at the same time. I've been trying to search images online and am now suspicious. Looking for opinions before I contact the company I got them from. I also feel their combs are very noticeable early,which seems to be true to white leghorns.

    The first pic is what the oldest 2 look like. This one here is a few days younger.

    They are not Delwares, I think they are either Leghorns or White Plymouth Rocks.

    I emailed the place I got them from ,and they are indeed leghorns. They were very nice about the mix up and will be replacing them for me.
