Delaware? White Leghorn? something else?

edit: The consensus is that #1 is an RIR, but what about #2?

I'm pretty sure at this point what these are, but thought I'd make sure.

To remove any chance of bias I won't say what breed/gender they are supposed to be until afterwards. (edit: posted below. #1 is supposed to be a RIR and #2 a Delaware. They are feed-store stock and I haven't a clue of their lineage.)

They are approximately 18 weeks old.


Chicken #1







Chicken #2




I'm pretty certain the third (visible in the second photo) is a Barred Plymouth Rock pullet. Chicken #2 here is the main uncertainty. It is entirely white except for some very small black specks on the hackle; it has gray underneath the surface on the chest. The tail, as you can see, is entirely white.


Thanks! I welcome your ideas.

she's only 8 - 9 wks old in this pic and has the 1 black feather and 1 very small grey spot on her head
she's a mix between a california grey rooster and a white leghorn hen
