    I cant see them very good in the first pic, but I am going to venture a guess that they are white rocks. It looks like you have 2 females and one male. Just my opinion.

    At this age how can you tell if they're white rocks or leghorns?

    Leghorns have yellow legs. But I think it's still too early to tell who's roos. I'm sure, like everybody else, that the one is, but I'm also seeing the beginning of waddles on the other two. I'd give them a few more weeks to be certain.

    What about white orpingtons? They have pink/fleshy legs like my buff orpingtons.

    What about California Whites - or the Ideal 23(something) ?
    I have two white babies, they're younger but look almost the same as yours - mine are either CA Whites or the Ideal ones'.....

    Quote:Maybe just my eyes, but the legs on those chicks look yellow to me. white rocks have yellow legs too don't they?

    I'm not arguing, I would really like to know how to tell. [​IMG]
