    We traded Mango for these 3 birds. one if definitely an Australorp. The other 2.. well.. we are not sure. They are about 11 weeks old.

    I am needing to learn their gender and breed.
    I know it is a lot to ask via internet, but these white birds
    were supposed to be Cornish X.. and obviously they are not.

    The friend that I got them from says that if any of them crow, I can return then and we will try to catch a pullet.

    here goes.....

    I am pretty sure they are pullets. I think they are white Leghorns.

    If they're really 11 wks old, I'd say they're pullets. Perhaps leghorns or white rocks?

    They both look like pullets: are you sure they are only 11 weeks?

    he said he got them May 6th.. or 4th... and they were babies then. The most they could be, I guess is 12 or MAYBE 13 weeks old.
    I am pretty sure they were very young when he got them.

    well they must be pullets, the roosters tails grow like weeds on those leghorns; They look pretty mature, but they do mature faster than a lot of breeds
