    So, do these chicks look like white rocks? Or what else might you suggest?
    They started off yellow, turned solid white, and are not very friendly compared to my RIRs. They really won't hold still long enough for a non-blurry pic. My camera is sloooooow.
    They are about 23 days old today:

    Could be leghorns, but my guess is white rocks.

    white rocks if the earlobe is red, cornish if it's white.

    somebody correct me if that's wrong.

    oh they are definitely not Cornish!

    I was thinking either White Rock or Leghorn, but I really don't know the differences.
    They both lay good I think, right?
    They all came from the pullet bin and all seem to be pullets, so I should be OK either way, I was just curious.

    Quote:Oh, nice. I didn't know that. It'll be easy for me to tell when they start laying [​IMG] hehehe

    I'm kindof partial to brown eggs myself

    Their long legs and body shape remind me a lot of the white leghorns I've got.

    You'll be able to tell which they are long before they start laying. Rocks will have red earlobes, and leghorns will have white earlobes. In general, red earlobes mean brown eggs, and white earlobes mean white eggs.

    Slender build and comb development make me think leghorn.
