    Hi all just got my coop built last week. Went yesterday and bout 3 chickens, one solid white hen(got our first egg today) and these two supposedly columbian rock pullets. So after getting them and reading online I'm pretty sure there columbian rocks but are these hens or are they roosters? Thanks for any and all help!

    the ones above post 1 are in England called Light Sussex and in USA Columbian ----

    one looks like a roo the one on the right


    the one above looks like a leghorn pullet or it could be a hybrid which would be a White Star

    They aren't Light Sussex, they have pink legs. Those birds look like they are Columbian Rocks, they have yellow legs. I'd say you have one pullet and one cockerel.
