I have five chicks that came from Cackle Hatchery that are supposed to be White Rocks. I know that this is very likely a case of "Hatchery Quaility" birds that differ in some way from the APA standard for the breed. I am hoping these hens are White Rocks but now I am noticing a black wash to the legs of the largest chick. I purchased them believing them to be all pullets but now (given my experinace with other Plymouth Rocks) that I may not have all pullets and I may not have White Rocks. My question is about genetics, is it possible a chick with this much grey to feather out into a fairly presentable version of the White Rock? How do hatcheries end up with chicks that are so un-like the chicks of private breeders? Are these White Rocks or not? PICS: Three days old: Now at three weeks they are begining to feather out white but are keeping their gray markings? Will these fade?
