This is a pair of standard red cochins. They are both supposed to be pullets, but as you can see, one is much larger than the other. The smaller of the two is "fluffier". Her new feathers are really really down-like and her tail feathers are pretty much just a giant puff of fuzz. Her feet feathers are also really fuzzy. Her comb is also just a little larger and pinker. She's also the most people-friendly of my whole brood. She is out of the brooder and on your lap, every chance she gets.
The larger is more aggressive, but not terribly so. Her feathers are very much like normal feathers, and her tail feathers are more like a regular chicken tail. Her feet feathers are really grown out and very feather-like.
Here's another picture of the larger of the two:
and here's the smaller of the two from earlier today:
They're both very curious and sweet...but I'm wondering if the differences mean I have one roo and one hen?
