    When I puchased my six chicks at Tractor Supply, I got two Buff Cochins and four "assorted pullets" because I definitely want pullets, not roos. I picked out four of these adorable girls, classic "peeps" that are little balls of butter yellow. They are starting to get tiny white feathers on their wings and they have short little bills that are very close to their eyes. They also have orange feet, which I love. But, after looking at many, many pics of chicks last night, I cannot for the life of me figure out what I've got. I don't think they are RIR or PR because I've raised those before and they are more reddish when they are little. Can someone please help me? Here is a pic. Beware, she's a cutie!!! : )

    That's a single comb, so I'd say either White Leghorn or White Rock; those are the most common.

    Could be a tetra tint. they are white leghorns crossed with white rocks(I believe) for TSC. On my home page I have a pic of them as chicks..they are relatively small white chickens,less flighty than leghorns. They lay a nice sized white egg.

    I was trying to figure out the same thing I have 3 of those little cuties too and then I have two reddish blonde ones that were in with my assorted pullets ( I purchased 5 assorted pullets and 6 assorted bantams). I don't believe that they are plymoth rock only because they were in a completely seperate bin. They kept the plymoth rocks in their own bin. The two red girls I have I think are too light to be RIR...don't know what they are either. My bantams are beautiful too. I have 3 booted redish brown ones 2 booted white ones and 1 white and black one that has bright yellow feet :) I am going to try to call tractor supply to see if they know exactly what breed they could be. I didn't want to get any of the "meat" chickens because I didn't want my hubby to be tempted to slaughter them. We want them for eggs, pest control (lots of ticks on our land) and entertainment/pets.

    KJT135, After looking on here at some pictures I am almost possitive the reddish blonde color pullets that I purchased are the Buff Orpingtons! They look exactly like them...as for the white pullets, maybe White Orpingtons? Not sure about the bantams either... I will post a bunch of pictures tomorrow of my chickens. Then I am sure someone will be able to tell me [​IMG] !
