    I bought these chicks as a stright run 9 weeks ago. I was wondering if anyone could please help me identify the breed?

    Mine are the same age and look exactly the same, after posting pics I got the same opinion, White Rocks. My White Rock Roo is the sweetest and friendliest!

    I am going against popular opinion, the one on the left is a Red Sex Link cockerel.

    I too thought the same at first, but the female appears to have similar coloring in her hackle feathers.

    They all seem to have just a hint of a buff color to them, I have six of them.
    Thank you all for the help!
