    I bought six pullets from TSC and I can't remember what breed they were labeled as. Are these too young to be able to tell their breed? Also how old do they look? They have quite a few wing feathers and their tails are staring to come in. Thanks for any help!

    They could be one of any white breed of chicken. Could be Leghorns, Delawares, White Rocks, Cornish crosses, etc.

    You'll be able to tell when they get older and feather out more. For now just enjoy the fuzzybutt stage :)

    I'd guess 10 days old. Mine looked like that about a week ago and they're 3 weeks old now. :) Prob a white breed, Im guessing thats whats sold mostly at feed stores.

    Here is an updated photo of one of the chicks. One of them has a black spot on it's beak and light brown on it's head. The same chick also has orange legs where the others, like this one, have gray/yellowish legs.
