    I have three white girls - they are 6 weeks old - and I don't know what breed they are. Can anyone identify this breed? It's tempting to label them leghorns, but I'm not sure.

    Quote:Maybe so, Stacy. That's better than "Fuzzy Butts" which is what we've been calling them. [​IMG]

    I'd say they're White Rocks. They're too stocky for a Leghorn.

    We raised Leghorns awhile ago, and they were a very different shape then these...I agree with the rest, they're white rocks.

    Karen, yours appears to have a white beak. Does it have white legs/feet? If so, yours is more likely a white orpington. Rocks have yellow skin and are stocky. Orps are also stocky but have white skin. Both breeds have a single comb.
