    I got these chickens from Yogiman, last month. He said that these are White Rocks that he got from a hatchery, back in February. It was pointed out to me that Rocks have yellow legs. All of these have white legs. I know that they are not Leghorns. These are fairly large chickens. What do I have, please.

    My DH said to let all of you know that he is 6' tall and 240lbs, so that you can judge the size of the roo.

    Thanks,

    Look like white orps to me as well.[​IMG]
     
  6. could be Plymouth rocks since the hens have a smaller comb. I know they do get godzilla like.
    The roos are gorgeous and thier size is what makes me think they are WPRs. My WPRs have a very light coloring in the legs.
    NICE BIRDS

    I know Yogiman was raising out a flock of white orps. We were going to trade eggs from his white hens and my blues.

    Are you sure he said rocks and not orps?

    I say Orpingtons. They have pink legs and I think Rocks have yellow legs.
