    Just got back from the feed store with 4 chicks. Two are Silkies and I think the other two were Plymoth Rocks but they don't look like the chick pics I see on here. I can get a better picture if needed.

    Thanks!

    Plymouth Rocks come in so many varieties it's almost impossible to tell.
    I think there are at least 7 varieties of rocks.
    What variety did they supposedly have?
    The following link will show chicks of almost all varieties. The chick pics are at the bottom of the page.

    I can't get the pic to enlarge for a better look, but the only one of those four that could possibly be a Barred Plymouth Rock is the black one in the very back and if it doesn't have a white spot on top of its head (I don't see one in the pic), it's not a Barred Plymouth Rock either. The light yellow one could be a White Plymouth Rock.

    Here are some better pictures of the chicks in question.

    BTW I don't really mind if they were mislabled, I just wonder what they are :)

    There are several breeds that have this type of chipmunk appearance, but like ChickenCanoe, my guess would be Easter Eggers.

    I have one of these chicks from our feed store and the guy said it is a Cream Legbar. Your feed store did not know what they were?! Also I am new here too!
