I got the all heavies assortment from McMurray, and they are all growing great. My question is, some of them are very difficult to identify. I can tell the black giants, barred rocks, white giants, and buffs, but there are four that are a very light tan, almost dirty white, with splashes of darker tan across their wings. I can't seem to find them in the catalog, does anyone know what they are? Maybe it is because they haven't gone through a second molt? This is my first time raising chickens, and I love it!! They are so funny to just sit and watch, and I have two geese, also. Thanks for any and all information!

They sound like sex-linked white tailed red males. Probably, come from their Redstars. The males inherit dominant white and sex-linked silver from their mothers but still show a lot of gold.
