    Probably white Rocks. They don't seem to have the shape of a Leghorn.

    Amberlinks are rare in a farm supply store. They normally come from a hatchery which these didn't. So I don't think they are those.

    But I could be wrong.

    They aren't that uncommon. The alternative is red sexlink cockerels. That's the only other type that I can think of that would be predominantly white with a bit of red/gold.
    Most feed stores order production types/crossbreeds.
