    I was told approximately 15 weeks but I'm thinking they're more like 13 weeks.

    If the back one looks the same with its comb I'd say it's a pullet too. Generally the males will have a bit more comb and wattles and they will be much redderat this age.

    Thanks for the info!!! I'm new to raising chickens I got 6 six white leghorns in March of this year and am slowly adding to my flock. I added a red sexlink and now these 2 babies :)

    Your leghorns should be close to laying I would think.

    Look to be pullets. But they aren't Barred Rocks, they are mixes. As long as they layers, you're probably delighted.

    Mixes are fine with me... I love them just as much. They are just pets/layers!
