I have never picked good numbers in the lottery, but I seem to have won the pullet lottery this time around. They are 7 1/2 weeks old. I got mostly pullets, and one cockerel. One white that I didn't figure out before it went to a new home. Pretty good odds for 9 assorted chicks or 7:2!
My neighbor wasn't as fortunate, she ended up with 4 cockerels and 2 pullets. However, I gave her one of my pullets so it worked out okay for her.
Here are the results of my chicks:
Black Cochin chick #1
Black Cochin chick #2
I guessed cockerel, but I think I was wrong. It still has a tiny yellowish comb and no wattles.
White Cochin #1
White Cochin #2
It looked like pullet for a long time, but started acting like a cockerel big time. It went to a new home over the weekend. I still don't know if it is a girl or a boy. I will update if I find out it crowed or laid an egg.

Buff Cochin #1

Silver Penciled Cochin #1
Silver Penciled Cochin #2
15 cochins 9 female:5 (+1 white) males I will order an assortment again if the odds in assortments are usually this good.
