    We ordered 4 chicks (hopefully pullets) from mpc. They arrived yesterday, in good health and seem to be doing great.

    We ordered 1 each: Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, White Rock, and Buff Orpington.

    I'm pretty sure that the black one is the BR, the brown one the RIR, and the and darker yellow one the BO.

    But, the lighter yellow chick with the black/gray on its back doesn't really look like the pictures of white rock chicks that I've seen.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I think you got everything you ordered. The white rock my son got had some greyish tint to her from what I remember. I'd have to pull some photos to be sure though. I do remember being surprised by it because I figured that with her being a white chicken, she'd have plain light yellow fuzz ...

    MODS - I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum, can it be moved to the "Which Breed or Gender" forum? Thx.
