    I hate to say this and I could be wrong but the white plymouth rocks look a lot darker yellow and not as thick. maybe we can get more opinions?

    It's unfortunate you have no other breeds of the same age to compare. At 2 weeks there would be an obvious size difference.

    Do you have a small kitchen scale with which you can weigh them?

    A ruler won't help. At 2 weeks old they only have primary wing feathers so far?
