    Actually they are Light Sussex hens. I only took a quick glance at them and didn't notice that the legs were pinkish. Columbian Rocks and Light Sussex are identical in color pattern, but the Columbian Rocks have yellow legs. Columbian Rocks are the more common of the two breeds here in the US. Sorry if I made your heart skip a beat. But what I said before still hold true (with the breed alteration), you have two beautiful Light Sussex pullets. :eek:)

    That's for sure. I've been raising chickens for 50 years and am still learning new things from my fellow BYC members. :eek:) Good luck with your Light Sussex pullets.
