    Hatched 4 chicks, now around 11 weeks old...Roos or pullets? (Think maybe it's 3-1 to the Roos...) new to this. Little speckled one possibly a pullet?

    The red and white bird is a pullet - the three primarily white birds (if those are indeed different birds) are all cockerels. Sorry about that. They almost look like the result of a sex linked mating. What are the parents?

    The wee pullet has dad's yellow legs, as has one of the 'white' ones...the other two have mum's pale legs. Does this mean anything?
