    I bought 7 Tractor Supply special pullets. Cute little yellow balls of fluff. 20 weeks later they are laying machines. I was under the impression they were Leghorns, but... they are laying brown eggs. Any idea what breed?

    Look to be white parent stock used to make RSLs. Absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to have some.

    They look like my Tetra Tints that i got from tractor supply. I thought they were leghorns too, until some of them started getting a few little black spots and a few have even lost almost all of the white and are now a dirty cream color.

    Don't look stocky enough to be White Rocks.

    I'm guessing RIW or amberlinks.
