    I have 5 white leghorn and 4 white rock pullets (according to my packing list). They are two weeks old, and I cannot tell which is which. Almost all of them have orange legs, but a few have darker legs (orange, but not bright orange). Other than that they look the same to me.

    Is there a way to tell the difference between white leghorn and white rock at this point?

    Pictures would help. And I know that the ears lobes are white on the leghorns and red on the rocks.

    The White Rocks will eventually outgrow the leghorns too. They are a "big butt" bird and the leghorns are kinda lean and rangy . But I've had both and both are good birds
