But they are laying brown eggs!
What a surprise! And look at Miss Wild Eye!
Sure look like leghorns to me! I don't know what to tell you, other than they may have been mixed somewhere along the line!
I bet they're White Rock's. Leghorn's are usually slimmer with a bigger comb.
They look like they're loving the sun!
Agree..leghorns are much slimmer and not so fluffy either. They are more likely white rocks.
My first thought was, "They look pretty chunky to me!"
I vote white rock, also.
Well, Our 5 rescued "White Rocks" are doing great after a week with us! They are starting to settle in nicely. They are sure fatties!!
I agree with white rock, my leghorns are about 3 lbs adult and skinny little buggers
YIKES!! I was examining one of the new arrivals and noticed she was heavily infested with what looked like little lice. They are a light yellowish/orange color and were rapidly scurrying around her back.
I had checked her because I noticed her flicking pine chips onto her back. I am planning on getting some Sevin and powdering them up. The other large chickens that we picked up this weekend were infested with mites!! Gahh!! I may stick to ordering day old chicks in the future...
Any further advice is welcome.
Don't use Sevin. That is nasty stuff. Try locating some FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth, instead.
