These white & black birds are 7-8 weeks old. We've got 3 roosters
and 1 little lady. They have been some of the friendliest chicks we have. Any ideas on breed?





Also, you think the all white one in the #2 picture is a White Leghorn?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Any thoughts?

We went to Tractor Supply Co. on two different occassions and got some of these each time. I believe they came from the 'straight run' bin (although that probably doesn't help much in identifying). They were all yellow until their little wings began to sprout out.

Thanks.

Oops - just noticed your leghorn question. I don't think it's a leghorn - too stocky. I think it's either a white rock or cornish cross. It it's just as active and normal acting as your other chicks, than I'd say white rock. If it's very lazy and eats a ton, you'll need to assume cornish X.

The white one looks just like my leghorn cockerel. The other one looks like a DE? Don't quote me on that one though!! He looks like he has more black than the DE's normally do. Here's my W. Leghorn:

They look like my Delaware Roosters with a lot more color. The other looks like a white rock. I bought several at Tractor Supply this year and I believe they received their chicks from Privett Hatchery.

Thanks for all the thoughts!

Regarding the all white little guy......... he is just as active as the other birds. We actually have few jumbo x rocks and this guy is definately not that. If the consensus is white rock, would that be a white plymouth rock? (I'm really a newbie at this
) Also these all white ones seem to have really, really soft (down-like) feathers compared to the others chickens.

Regarding the black and whites....... they have differing amounts of black. Here's a picture of another one that has much less black.....
