    It has been a couple of months since I got my chicks, anyone want to guess what the all white chicken is? I ordered silver, brown laced and Columbian wyandottes. This one was thrown in I have no idea what it is but hope it is a female as I really like it mystery.jpg mystery2.jpg

    I'm not sure of breed ,,,, so it would be a guessing game for me, since I never had one like that. The one thing I have a feeling about, since it was an extra, is that:hit
    It may be a cockerel:(... I'm going by the size of those muscular looking legs. (in second pix)
    @sassysarah What do you think?

    It may be a White Plymouth Rock? Not 100% sure. It looks like a pullet.

    Pics arent entirely clear, but it appears to have a rose comb bud....which would point to white wyandotte. Nothing screaming cockerel at this point

    I see a pullet, I can’t see tail very well though. I agree with Ol Grey Mare.

    Either a Chantecler or white wyandotte. Chanteclers have cushion combs which don’t look much different than rosecombs. Does the hatchery you got them from sell either breed?
