    I was wondering if anyone can tell me what breed my chicks might be? They were part of a class project for my son's 2nd grade class. They hatched the eggs in the class room. We brought them home May 19 and they are now 1 month and 3 weeks old. I hope that I posted the pictures correctly. Any help will be appreciated.

    They look a lot like the little white chicken I have and posted about here in this part of the forum. I was told it was a White Rock and I think those look like it too!

    I think that they're both White rock cockerels.

    White Rock.
    Probably a cockerel.
    NOT a Leghorn, they are much more petite built. White Rocks were used in making the Cornish Rock crosses that everyone raises for meat birds.

    I actually have 4 chicks that we brought home and only one is a hen. [​IMG] I only know that they hatched form brown eggs? Do the Delawares lay brown eggs?

    Delawares are brown eggs, but so are Rocks and most of your dual purpose chickens.

    If it were a Cornish Rock cross, it would be eating size already. This one is, no doubt in my mind a White Rock.
