    I decided to pick up some chicks from TSC last week due to a bad experience with my previous supplier. I got 13 of my normal production red pullets and 7 more on impulse from the group labeled "pullets". I only use the girls for bug control around the property, a good size flock is easier and cheaper than any spray i have ever found and they work year around, the eggs are just a bonus for my family and friends. Now for the big question, figuring out what they are. Im no good at telling one breed from the other, so i wish to bow to the knowledge of the forum.

    I got a few chicks that look like this....mine are amber white and buff cochin but hard to tell with such a plain standard chick look. Good luck

    I'd probably have to agree with it being a leghorn. [​IMG]

    excellent, i am useless when it comes to knowing one from the other. I'm hoping they are egg layers of any kind so they stick around for a few years to eat bugs out of the garden

    Yes, leghorn. I was thinking they looked like cornish cross, but their legs weren't nearly large enough and they weren't feathering out fast enough. Leghorn makes much more sense.
