    They showed up in the neighborhood a few weeks ago and are hanging out in my front yard. They are a little smaller than my 4 month old Delaware Blue and Cuckoo Maran.

    they look a lot like my leghorn does. not sure but they both look like they might be hens. I don't have a crap ton of experience with it, just going off my hen's appearance.

    Thanks! If they are pullets, I'll try and catch them. They are pretty tame, but none of the neighbors claim them or know where they came from.

    I would try to catch them anyways if no one is claiming them, and if nothing else find a home for them. Good luck!

    You got some White Leghorns there. I have one and they lay BIG eggs. Sorry, but I can't give you a gender.

    I think hens also, at least corral and keep for a while. White leghorns are good layers.
