    Hello from Australia fellow Chooky people!

    I have just become the proud owner of 4, 4 month old, beautiful Light Sussex hens, Rowena, Harriett, Polly and Sybil. They are making me laugh every day! My question for today is; Rowena has white legs and beak and the other 3 have yellow legs and beak. Would anyone know why this is?

    Sorry for late reply!

    Pure Light Sussex have white legs. It sounds like the other three are Columbian Rock Hens.

    Here's a link to an image of a Columbian Rock Hen.

    Do your three look like the hen in the picture?

    Hope this helps! ;)
