Our White Rock pullets are outstanding for egg production the entire year, and are especially desirable through the cold winter months when lighter breeds slack off. They lay a brown egg of fine quality and size. The rapid growth, white, easy-to- dress feathers, and golden yellow skin of the cockerels of our strain make them equally desirable. Raise some for the frying pan or roaster. They are compact and well fleshed at almost any age. They are all big birds, hens reaching 6 to 7 lbs. and cocks 8 to 9 lbs. A flock of these pure white birds ranging busily over a grassy field is one of the prettiest sights you will ever see. Baby chicks are a creamy white and may show a touch of gray smokiness.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
I’ve been buying mail order poultry for years and have never bought from MMH before. I read a few reviews and decided to try them out. They have the fastest shipping I have ever seen from any hatchery, I received an email on Sunday said my order was shipped and Monday morning at 5AM the post office called me that my chicks were there for pick up. The White Rocks looked great, can’t wait for them to feather out. Thanks MMH.
I went in on an order with someone, so I got a small order. I got two White Rock males and 4 females. They are about 2 1/2 months old now. White rocks are now my favorite breed. Just handling them a few times they are tame. So friendly. Excellent chickens. Thanks McMurray.
Received our White Rocks yesterday and all 15 of them were incredibly healthy. I am HIGHLY impressed with Murray McMurray hatchery, and I refuse to order chicks from anyone else in the near future. My Buff Geese, and Khaki Campbell ducks will be in this week as well. I am stoked!
My White Rock hen, Astro, was the first of my hens to lay. She is sweet, and watches over my other hens. She is also a great producer.
My White Rock is amazing! He has the coolest crow. Blizzard, that's his name. He has his hens and is a proud father. Thank you for some awesome birds! -Lucas
White Rocks are such a docile, reliable breed. These are great hens if you want an excellent layer and pet. Ours follow us around in the yard and loved to be picked up. Such a friendly breed. Not very broody like our Buff Orpingtons.
I ordered 100 pullets (Brown egg layers) in Feb. They are doing great and some of them are laying. They are so pretty.
We bought 100 females and 10 males in early March. We still have 102 of them. They are growing very big. We are very pleased with our chicks. It is very easy to catch them in the evening and they will follow you to their cages. Can't wait for them to start laying. We will buy more soon!!!
We received our 75 White Rocks on Saturday afternoon the first part of May. They were hatched that Friday night, mailed that Saturday morning! FAST!! All are healthy and robust. Their little wing feathers are already starting to show. This was our first order from McMurray but it sure won't be the last! We could not be more impressed! Thank you so much.
Our 3 week old chicks are active and healthy. This is the second batch of chicks we have purchased from you, and we are, again, so impressed with the quality of your service and your birds. The White Rocks and Easter Eggers are already the most tame and curious of the flock (also have Speckled Sussex and Anconas). In our first flock, these two breeds were our favorite for the combination of their beauty, calm dispositions, and egg production. We are so happy with our chicks and your company. Thanks McMurray Hatchery! Dansville, MI
I received 100+ live chicks at the post office in Fairbanks, Alaska. Every chick survived. That was May, 2007. Very vigorous chicks i.e. White Rocks and Silver Laced Wyandottes.
I ordered White Rocks 4/07. I have enjoyed these chickens very much. No one believes you can get attached to chickens. They are great egg layers and super sweet. The rooster - Henry, is such a good boy. He is so beautiful. McMurray Hatchery did a spectacular job with their shipment. I recommend them to everyone, they are first class. All 27 chicks arrived in excellent condition. This has been a wonderful experience! White Rocks are a great choice. McMurray Hatchery is as well!
A few months ago I order 25 chicks from you and 13 of them were White Rock roosters. All of the chicks arrived healthy and alert at our local post office. I didn't loose one chick! They are now 13 weeks old and are very large! The other 12 (Buff Orpingtons, Silver Laced Wyandottes,Speckled Sussex and Light Brahmas) are the most beautiful pullets I've ever seen. Than you for providing top quality birds. I will be ordering again!
Murray McMurray Hatchery has been doing business with my family for three generations. We have been very pleased with the chicks and the service. Keep up the good work!
White rocks are excellent chickens. I have bought them for many years and am quite pleased.
I ordered White Rocks a couple of months ago from your company and they have done very well. They arrived in good health and I will continue buying my chicks from you. Thanks.
