Where did you get them? They are to young to sex and its coloring is very unusual, most likely a mix. Oh and Welcome to BYC!

Hi, I got them from a farm where alot of different breeds where roaming free, I thought it'd probably be a mix and I thought it was a hen due to the small crown and featherless legs but I guess I'll find out more in the upcoming weeks :)

Roosters and hens can both have feathered and featherless legs.
And yes it's probably a mixed breed cockerel.
Oh thankyou for sharing that with me, I was under the assumption Cockerel's only had feathered legs. I can't wait to see how the chicks turn out :) I have a little chick which I'm curious about as it has really long legs and a short body, the farmer reckons it's a pheasant cross chicken, is that possible? Please find a photo attached

its very rare if at all possible to have a pheasant chicken hybrid. I can't see it very well , if you could get a better picture i could guess the breed.
