Black Cochin Bantams

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

We have some black cochin bantam chicks. How do you tell if they are roosters or pullets? Or can you not tell until they are older? Thanks!

I'd say around a month or two to tell on most chicks. :)

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

I would love to see pictures. I have two that are almost two weeks old. So tiny, and precious.

By 5 weeks you should know for sure. Boys get red wattles and combs by then. Girls have no wattles and a small almost non existent flesh coloured comb. They are gorgeous bantams.
