    We bought these 2 chicks from our local ACE. They said they are both Buff Orphington chicks but their feathers are white. Does this seem right or could it be a different breed?

    I'm thinking possibly White Rocks? [​IMG]

    Orpingtons do come in white, but they're pretty rare and not usually found at a feed store.

    I'm thinking you have white Rocks also.

    What color are their legs? Do you know which hatchery they are from? Most likely they are white Rocks, but McMurray does have white Orpingtons.
