    IMG_3454.JPG IMG_3496.JPG I know it'll just be guesses but I'm curious on what you guys think :) I just got some two month old pullets(I hope**fingers crossed**)
    And I wanted to see if anyone can tell what they are? I'm new to owning chickens so I'm not 100% on what they are. They're probably a mixed breed.

    The white one looks like a leghorn and the red is a red sexlink

    I'm kinda leaning towards mixed on both but as of now I'd say pullet

    Where did you get them? It looks like someone has a feather-legged rooster with a flock of assorted layers and these are the offspring.

    Aren't red sexlink two different breeds in one?

    Curious now, what color was that rooster? I'd guess he also contributed the white skin since both have it.

    I think it's safe to say they are barnyard mixes. They do look like pullets.

    There were a couple roosters with feathered feet but I don't remember a white one.
    One looked like a barred Cochin and the other I'm not sure of but it was red

    You may have a non-traditional sexlink, then. Red dad + silver mom = chick 2. Chick 1 probably has a dominant white mom (maybe Leghorn) so her paternity is less certain.
