    I would say pullets for sure. Regular feathers to. These are two white bantam cochins about three weeks old my rooster is on the right. Can you tell the difference in the combs?

    Edited to add picture oops! One other thing is my pullets have always feathered out faster in my cochins, but this could vary with every line.

    Yes I can see the difference in the comb.
    out of our two birds one has a slightly bigger comb, whereas the other has a poofier tail but neither of their combs are red or even pink they are both quite yellow

    oooh I'd feel super lucky if they were both hens [​IMG]

    That is lucky. I have 8 white cochin chicks and 6 of them are roos. [​IMG] I also have 5 silver laced cochins and 4 are roos. I didnt get lucky this time lol.

    Quote:well I guess i just got lucky with the cochins, because I hatched 12 chantecler chickens and only 3 are hens [​IMG]

    but the funny thing is the woman I bought the cochins from told me she hadn't had any pullets hatch this year [​IMG] These were an oopsie hatch with a hen who had gone broody with no one noticing they hatched outside under a bush [​IMG]

    2 pullets if they are 4-5 weeks old. If they are younger, it may be too soon to tell. Congrats!!

    Looks like two regular feathered girls to me.
