    I ordered a mixed bag of mostly roosters from Cackle. They're almost 3 weeks old. We think we have mostly barred rock, buff orp. and production red, but we cannot identify 3 of the chicks. We originally thought they were BO, but their feathers are coming in almost, but not quite white. They're just barely off-white. Their chick 'fuzz' is definitely yellow, and not buff like the BO's. Does anybody have any idea what they might be? Also if you see any of the surrounding chicks that don't look like BR, BO or production red, that would be nice to know. The one in the center of each pic is the white-ish one that I'm asking about. Thanks.

    Looks like BR, WR, EE, maybe a RIR, and a RSL?

    Yep, I think the white one is a red sex-link too. I don't see any EE's in there, but I do see the breeds you mentioned originally.
