    My girls are 3 weeks old. I bought them at a Tractor Supply store so I am clueless as to what breed they are (not that it really matters). I am just curious to know what breed everyone thinks they are. I have been looking online and have a couple of guesses but I would like the opinion of those who are knowledgeable.[​IMG]

    I was guessing Leghorns. Are the stores that bad with the sexing that some may be boys? I sure hope not, because they will have to go if they are.

    The stores don't do the sexing and the problem is that sometimes the chicks get mixed up by people putting them into the wrong bin.

    I made sure I got them within a couple of hours of them getting there. I hope I am safe in that regard.

    The chicks I got last spring from TS were a mix of Speckled Sussex, white rock and RIR. Bought pullets and they were all pullets--now if they'd just start laying.

    Here's the WR and RIR at about 10 weeks:
