Hi MMH says these are Delawares but they have no Black markings so far.
They dont look alot like Dels to me in that pic, but here are some I had a year ago, 8 weeks old for comparison:
Without the black, they don't look like Delawares to me either.
Could be white Plymouth Rocks, maybe.
I don't see the black speckles on the hackle feathers or any black in the tail feathers that characterize the Delaware breed. I would say no. Compare the pic that Cyn. posted for you and you'll see what I mean.
I think they look like white rocks also.....here is a pic of mine about same age to compare
Thank you , I thought they looked more like rocks , I am not happy with McMurry they were supposed to be Delawares I ordered 1 and the papers said they sent an extra and now I see they didn't send any.
And I picked the Delaware for my Roo because it said they are good protectors.
I guess I'll have to look up the characteristics of the white Rock.
Thank you for the posts.
Lurky what breed is that behind your Rock I have one of those.
That is a barred rock. They are the same age but the white one is way bigger. Is the white rock you got a rooster? Or did you not get a rooster at all?
thank you I thought it was a cookoo maran I did not order a barred rock.
All 3 of those Are Roo's lucky me.
I did order a cookoo maran hen for the brown eggs but alas I didn't get that either.
Well, the barred rock and the cuckoo marans do look very much alike. You will find out if you get some dark eggs
