    The first picture is a 2 week old orphan we took in and they didn't know the breed. The second is 5 weeks and was labeled a Dominique at TSC but would like to make sure.

    The 3rd picture is the rest of our 5 week old flock from TSC. They came from 'Assorted Pullets'. Last picture is our Bantam.

    Thanks in advance!

    The dark red and white ones are red sex links. The white ones are probably white rocks, and yes, that should be a dominique.

    Do the White Rocks grow substantially faster than the other breeds? Both of mine feathered quickly and had to be taken out of the brooder at 2 weeks due to overheating. We had someone tell us they were Cornish X because of how much faster they grew & developed.
