    Awhile back a friend of mine who is a photographer got three little chicks from TSC. They were listed as pullets but no breed. I was pretty sure they were white leghorns.
    The only pic I have is kinda old but its all I have. Now they are laying so I know they are pullets but........ they lay brown eggs!!! Now I've had chickens about 5 years and I know I'm not expert but the only white chickens I know of that lay brown eggs is a White Rock. I have had barred rocks but the body of these hens don't look like the rocks I've had in the past. Now I'm sure there are others but I just don't know what they are. So I guess my question is what white, single comb chickens lay brown eggs other that white rocks?

    Tetra Tint is one of TSC favorites! Check 'em out.
    Also, those barred chickens in the picture are Dominiques.

    Oh yeah, I knew those were dominickers( as we say) lol

    I looked up that breed and that sounds like a match!!! And like Leghorns, they lay early too!!!
