    I have 4 of these white chicks, they were about 10 or so weeks in these pics. Do you think they might be a light sussex mix? What else could they be mixed with? They are the sweetest most docile birds I've ever owned. One of them follows me around the yard and as soon as I sit down jumps right into my lap and loves to be held, it's the cutest thing ever! I'll have to get a better pic of her later.

    Also I have a little Roo...he's smaller then all the rest and his tail feathers are very long, probably a good 5 or so inches, any ideas? I'm wondering if he's some kind of bantam mix!

    They could be Light Sussex mix,the leg colors and the brown/red leaking through tells us its mixed.No telling what the other one is.
    Where did you get them all from?

    I know they are mixed, I was just wondering if they look like they have sussex in them. I got them for a lady who had an ad in the paper selling day old chicks.

    They look like Columbian Rock cross.
    I would also say that all but one were all Roosters..
