    I got a buff cochin for my mystery chick 6 weeks ago, and I'm not sure what it is. My head is saying male since it was my freebie, but it's not sparring like my known males that I ordered.

    A picture would really help. As you know all boys and girls at that age do the sparring.

    Oh and if it has any pink in its comb at all or a comb that is sticking up, it is a cockerel

    [​IMG] this is what's throwing me off. The splash is the roo I ordered. Totally obvious boy, and the black is a hen I ordered. The buff is in between. This picture is a week older than the buff alone.

    Well I might say pullet because she might just have a comb prematurely. My buff orp had a very small comb I was worried about and it was pink but that's because she was really hot and they get redder in the heat... Here is my buff orp at 10 weeks. I'm 99% positive she is a SHE [​IMG]
