    Late spring i bought a dozen or so chicks from the local feed store. I know it is always a risk of breed mix up so i am not upset but wondering what I have. The browns and rocs are obvious, most of the amber links also. Then i have thos one that is a bit heavier than the amberlink, all white, orange beek and legs, more comb than the amberlink. Any ideas? My local chicken people have suggested white leg horn and cornish.[​IMG]

    If they are heavier definitely not Leghorns. I think they are most like White Plymouth Rocks.

    I'm also thinking white Rock.

    Leghorns are small, lean, upright birds.

    A Cornish cross at this age would be probably twice the size of your other birds.

    Does she have a straight comb? The second pic, I can't tell. If it's a rose comb she's a white Wyandotte.
