    I got my chicks from Murray Mcmurray today and they put some extra chicks for warmth and I got about 10 yellow chicks with a bluish gray mark right on top there heads. What breed are they? I'll post pictures later

    Looks like white leghorns,they should be all cockerels probably, so maybe they did that to let me know they are all extras cause they are all the same and all what I only needed 1 white leghorn hen.

    The blue is simply to mark them as excess males. There's a couple breeds they could be, but they're cockerels.
