    Any experienced chicken-raisers - I have 3 white chickens, 2 black and white chickens, and 1 black chicken, all about 7 weeks old. Now I know that this is a ridiculously broad question, but any idea's of the breeds? IT"S JUST FOR FUN! All the breeds you suggest I'll plug in and see if I can find matching pictures! They're all from McMurray hatchery, "rainbow layers".

    The black and white I'm guessing barred rocks, the whites are orpingtons, and the black are cochin???????????????????????

    I've bought the Rainbow layer special several times and they don't usually include Cochins. The white could be Leghorns or EEs, the blacks will probably end up being black sex links or austrolorps and the black and whites are probably going to be barred rocks.

    I think the whites may be leghorn b/c they are significantly bigger than the others, and leghorns are big, right?

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'm checking out pictures!

    leghorns are a smaller breed of chicken than barred rocks, but, not as small as bantams

    The whites could also be White Rocks.
