What gender is my 5 wk old Cochin Bantam??

post #1 of 9

At least that's what I think Penguin is, my first incubator hatched chick (1/9) from a surprise egg batch, now hanging out with same aged RIR pullets.
I'm thinking/hoping pullet but not entirely sure
Thank you in advance smile.png

If it is a roo, wouldn't the comb be bigger and more red? I have some chicks that are only 4 wks and there is a definitive difference between the roo combs and hen combs.

Leaning towards Roo

 

 

My past experience with Cochin Bantams makes me remember they are slow developers.

 

A comb of that size at that age regardless of color is suspect.

Hmm... I guess I will have to wait a few more weeks and take more photos

Definitely a rooster. Also that's funny I have a 9 week old BSL pullet named Penguin, too!
