    Bought chick at Tractor Supply... supposed to be a pullet. Had only two very very small black spots on his/her back... but now we are seeing more black as it begins to feather.

    Any help for identification... please????

    It could be a california white. I got one from a feed store and it has black spots.

    Looks like a California White. Good egg layers!

    I have some Easter Eggers that are white with a black spot or two-but they have muffs and green legs and this one doesn't.

    California White Leghorn. She will be a beauty. I bought some myself from Ideal, but they didn't have the spots...hmm.

    Your chick looks just like what we have and it was sold as an Austra White, a cross between a White Leghorn and a Black Australorp.
