    I would guess young white Leghorn for the pullet, and the rooster is a Buttercup.

    She is young. Maybe 12-16 weeks.

    Making chicks sounds at all? I'm guessing more like 14 weeks old.

    I have had her for 2 months approx and she does make some sounds not like a chick tho. I got them both together from same place. A girl had them in a little cat carrier on her porch in the sun. And it is 120 here. So I said was taking them. Built a coop myself and kinda started from there.

    What did she look like when you got her? Was she all feathered out, or looked just like she does now?
