    #2 looks like a Sussex, and #3 looks like a Light Brown Leghorn. You're right on the Golden Laced Wyandotte.

    Cuties! I got 28 of them! The ones I got that look like #1 are White Leghorns, but I know some folks got both those and White Plymouth Rocks.

    Quote:that's what i thought... she's hopeful it's a BO but it was pretty light when it arrived. I'll post a picture next time I'm over - I'm hoping it's a white rock. How would I tell the difference between a white rock and white leghorn? just by the earlobes when they come in?

    I also got the MPC special. My babies are almost 5 weeks old. I had 3 white rocks, but 2 were dead in the box. A very helpful person on here identified her for me. She was grey and yellow, my white leghorns were just yellow. Now its very easy to tell, She is huge!!! Twice the size of my white leghorns. Hope this helps.
