    The Frizzle hen I got about (3-4) weeks ago came with 3 chicks, they looked a few days to a week old at the time (not sure). I was told they were not her's, she went broody on another(s) eggs. Anyway, being in the city, I can only keep hens so was wondering if anyone had any guesses on sex and breed? (before we get to attached to them...ya right:rolleyes:) There are three- 2 white and 1 black. My guess (and hope) is the smaller white one with feathered legs is a Bantam (Cochin?) mix pullet (she is in front in the first pic), and the larger white is a roo (Leghorn?). The black one I am undecided but thinking roo, possibly Australorp mix?

    Yep. I agree. The white ones could be leghorns or white rocks.

    Thanks, do you think possibly bantam Cochin for the smaller white one (pullet)? She is much smaller than the other two, has feathered legs (and a completely bare bottom! ?)

    Could be, but I couldn't see the feathers on the legs in your pic, sorry.
