    When I bought these the man said they are white leg horn, but as I look at pictures they look to full to be a WL?

    how old are they? they look a little skinny to be PRs...i would lean more towards the leghorns, but i'm no expert...just my personal opinion. PRs are usually more meaty than that. they are actually pretty good meat birds.

    I have had them for 6 weeks. When I got them they had more feathers then a few days old. So they could be 7 weeks.

    They look like White Leghorns to me. You'll know for sure when they get older, as White Plymouth Rocks will develop red earlobes, whereas Leghorns have white earlobes.

    They all look like White Leghorn pullets to me, with the exception of the crouching bird that Wyandottes7 mentioned.

    I am pretty sure that one is cockerel? It's just half the size of the other birds and I am not sure why. I had a really big cockerel that looked just like the small one. I found a good home for him. My daughter was hopeing the small one was a pallet but I don't think it is. How ever he is starting to grow so maybe he will catch up in his size.
