    Can anyone tell me what breed this is? We got 17 chicks (hatcheries choice) and the list of possible breeds doesn't match with this coloring. Any input would be greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    White Rock, which is a cross between a PR and a Leghorn.

    Uhhh, white Rocks are not a cross between a PR and a Leghorn, They're a pure bred bird. You only get a white Rock by breeding a white Rock male to a white Rock female. they're not a hybrid.

    What is it from? To me, the coloring looks to be splash.

    It was a white rock. I ordered an assortment or hatchery's choice and they gave a list of breeds that they "could be". I have another from that assortment that I thought were barred rocks but now I'm not sure??
