Last week my Marans cockerel went to the farm and was exchanged for what are supposed to be 2 white leghorn pullets. The first pic is at 2 1/2 weeks and the second at 1 1/2 weeks. What do you think?

Thank you. I was hoping it wasn't but that was my thought too. Unfortunately no males allowed here in Lake County Florida.

They might be leghorns. Most white breeds all look the same as young chicks though. It's not until around 6 weeks, that you can tell for sure.

Agreed; they look like White Leghorns, but if they develop red earlobes, then they are White Plymouth Rocks. Or if some other colored feathers besides white ones show up in them later then they could be hybrids.
