    Hi

    Here are better photos of #4 - the Black Cochin hen??? (we really hope she is a hen because she is very docile and is ok with being held by children in our educational outreach programs).

    Here's the other chicken that is in photo #4 but hasn't been identified yet. Hoping for a hen!

    My guesses:

    1- Red Cochin pullet
    2- Dark Brahma pullet
    3- Sultan (gender not sure with this breed, don't have any)
    4- Black Cochin pullet
    5- mottled cochin = see below this is our "Major"
    6- ?

    MAJOR - I slightly remember him looking like yours - but my NO expert by no means.....

    Hi

    I'm confused which one do you think is a Black Frizzled Cochin Hen (#4 ????)

    How about the other black chicken (no feathers on feet and not as fluffy as the Black cochin).

    Thank you!

    Hi

    Yours is really cute and frizzly! Mine has very soft fluffy feathers - are there different degrees of frizzleness? Do you think mine is a hen?

    Anybody else have thoughts on the gender of my sultan? Now 11 weeks and no redness on the head - do you think a hen???

    How about the other black one?

    Thank you!
