    A few weeks ago, this little girl showed up at a friends house (she has no chickens) for several days and was missing her tail feathers as if something tried to catch her. We went and caught her and brought her home. I started wondering what breed she is and started looking through the breeds list. She looks exactly like the Rhode Island White pic I found. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a RI White! Any thoughts?

    What color are the plymouth eggs, and are they about the same size as the RI's? She is the same size and shape as my RIR's. I guess we'll know when she starts laying eggs and they are brown..

    I'm looking at pictures of White Plymouth Rocks and Rhode Island Whites... I can't tell the difference between the two!

    I guess if my hen lays light brown eggs, she's a Rock.. If the eggs are darker brown than she's a RIW. Can I correctly assume this to be true?

    I'm not sure that RI whites are very common. Looks like a White Rock to me.

    I'm more inclined to White Plymouth Rock. Rhode Island Whtes should have rose combs, not single combs.

    Rhode Island Whites are a Rose Comb Breed there are no Single Comb Rhode Island Whites.
