    Hi- I got a batch of CCL eggs that were lost in the mail and ended up being 6 days before they were delivered (seller was only one state away). So of 14 eggs, I did get two to hatch out of that mess, the big shipped egg gamble. I have never hatched this breed before and I think I have pullets but I wanted to check with the experts. One has lighter stripes and their legs are different colors...they are purebred. Thanks so much!!

    If they're indeed CCL chicks, they're both pullets.

    I'm a little concerned about the different leg color, though. Does that seem odd to anyone else?

    the one closest to the camera seems like pink is coming through higher up the leg, maybe that will also color the lower leg.
