    I dont have a pic but a friend of mine asked me what breed of chicken her grandchildren have,they got them form a store,they are all white with a few black tail feathers.I dont have a clue because I only raise silkies.I did look on line but could find anything,she said they are a few months old so they would have all there feathers now.I thought leg horn but see no black in them.They forgot to ask at the store when they got them.Thanks for any help and pics would help so I could show her

    Bantam or large fowl?
    Without more detail, its a crapshoot

    Could be black tailed white Japanese bantams, Austrawhites, California White or a few more.

    Without pictures its impossible to say for sure. Body size? Body shape? Comb type? Earlobe color? Leg color? Feathered legs?

    Sounds kind of like a Delaware. Do they have some black on their neck? It is hard to say without a picture.

    Could be anything. What color is the skin? What size is it? comb type?
    Probably some kind of mix, like a California White.
