    My chicks are 22 days old, what breed do you think they are? All 6 look the same to me.

    I am going to attempt to add photos.

    The computer screen here at work is weird, but they look like White Rocks.

    They look very similar to my Tetra Tints I got from TSC 3 weeks ago.

    Chester1977...what state are you in? I know TSC orders from different hatcheries in different regions. We just went through this with some assorted pullets that I purchased from our TSC a couple of weeks ago....as 3 day old chicks they looked like any number of breeds and white pullets did not tell me anything(plus, the actual breed was not written on the back of the sign on the bin like some TSCs do). I ended up asking store what hatchery they were from and I called the hatchery.

    I live in the Shenandoah Valley of VA. Asked the store what hatchery they used (I had just gotten some guineas from Ideal) and they said "We use three different ones"

    I don't really care what they are, we are going to use them and the guineas as biological warfare on a uncontrollable boxelder beetle colony that is taking over our farm. And maybe eat a few eggs.

    Thanks to all for the comments.
