    My husband and I are new to the chicken world and have a few chicks that we can't figure out what type they are, this is one if them. She started out grey with slight yellow on her chest and is now developing white feathers. Any clue? Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    White rocks can be quite grey as new chicks and go white when the feathers come in.
    Cute little chick there.

    x2...although you may have to wait to be absolutely certain as many chicks will go through an odd juvenile phase when they first feather in, then their feathers will look quite different after finishing with adult feathers.

    But I think it most likely you have a White Rock too.

    x2. Ours went through two color changes before they finally developed their adult feathers.
