    I got 4 of these beautiful girls from Murray McMurray. I ordered assorted brown egg layers! I was told they are Tetra Tints, but McMurray does not breed those. I also called them, and they said there is no way that that is what those are. I have sent a picture to them, and am waiting on a response, but decided to see what yall thought! Their bodies are really yellow, almost white. Wings are all white and have super long feathers! [​IMG]

    keep an eye of the wings for a few days. if you start to see some dark flecks in them you probably have Delawares.

    An all white, brown egg laying chick is probably a White Plymouth Rock.

    They are about 8 days now. No dark spots at all.. pure white. Thats why I am so confused, they have no color what so ever!

    I think that they are White Plymouth Rocks.

    I didnt even think about them being Plymouth Rock. Only because their wing feathers are so long, and the picture that the hatchery has on their site, the chicks wings arent that white or long. I just looked the breed up though, and they could be!

    I got white rocks, and white wyandotte in my assorted brown egg layers earlier this year.
