My One Month Cochins Has Yellow Combs.

Both their little combs are yellow not full grown but does that guarantee their females? Or does it change color when they get older?

Are they bantam cochins?  If so here are a few pictures of my babies at about a month old for comparison.  They all turned out to be girls.  I was worried about the bottom one for awhile there.  Boys start to get pink round where the wattles grow about 5 weeks old.

The black one looks almost like mines! Minus the white front and her comb is smaller. Where do I look for wattles? Thanks for responding and thanks for the pics! Those chicks are so adorable! 😍

Our little black mottled girl is a cuddly sweetheart.  Her name is Calypso.  The kids adore her and she is so docile and friendly.

 

I found some pictures of boys at about 4 weeks and just over 6 weeks old (they went back to the breeder).  The wattles are just under either side of the beak.  My oldest girls are 11 weeks old and still without wattles so if they start sprouting those they are boys for sure.  As you can see, by 6 weeks it's pretty clear who the boys are.
