    These chicks are about 4 weeks old. They have grown larger than my other chicks (Australorps and reds), just shy of 1 lb each. They were hatched from brown eggs.

    My guess is that these three are white rock males but I'm still learning. Any help would be appreciated!

    They look like white rocks.
    Where did you get them from?

    The eggs came from a Midwestern hatchery supply farm that had excess so they were distributed for food. I chose to incubate mine and got an assortment of chicks.

    The chicks you have are super cute and fluffly. Where did you get them at? :,(( hatched them yourself or bought them? I would love to own one of these cuties myself if I could ever find any.

    Three beautiful males there. I'm not real familiar with white rocks. So I'm not gonna say breed. But if the hatchery said white rocks if go with that till I had evidence other wise.
