    I need help in identifying the three chicks pictured here. They are 12 days of age. The order was for 10 each:
    White Orpingtons
    White Rocks
    Delawares

    Thanks in advance for your help:

    Thanks chickman, I appreciate your input. I was confused as to what they might be as opposed to my order. Anyone else have input I would sincerely appreciate it as well.

    The last one has yellow feet? Is that what I am seeing?

    It is very hard to tell in the photo. If it is yellow feet it is not an orpington. They sent you something else. But don't be alarmed. I am looking at a photo not a chick. Only you can tell me what color the legs are.

    1: White Orpington
    2: Delawares
    3: White Rock (I have two and they look identical to the week old pictures of mine--they are now big, beautiful 18 week old pullets)

    Yes, it is:

    Orpington
    Deleware
    Rock

    If you go to the McMurray website they show pictures of the chicks.

    Yogiman, that third chick could be a Delaware too, just not marked much. I've had some lighter (usually female) birds that feathered in white for the first few weeks and then showed just gray lacing on the neck and a little color on the tail later.

    If it's not a Del, then it's a Rock.
