So I bought 1 blue Cochin Pullet from Meyers 6 weeks ago. Please tell me my beautiful blue fluffy butt isn't a Roo. That red and the wattles are really starting to worry me. I'll have to sell "her" if its a boy and it's my only cochin.








And for those wondering no I do not keep her in that tiny cage. Hubby wasn't home at the moment so I put her in there to get a good picture.

Hi! I've never raised cochins before. I'm leaning slightly towards roo but I'm defiantly not sure yet. Keep us posted! I also posted pics of one of my five week old chicks. I'm worried she might be a he too! You can let me know what you think. (It's labeled as Boy or Girl?? in my profile.)

Hmmm the little wattles developing on yours make me think Roo but I'm not sure either. lol I had a SLW who got the start of wattles at 4 weeks but she lays me a beautiful cream egg every other day now. :) These guys/gals def keep us guessing!

I'm leaning towards rooster, but the body shape seems to be hen-like, so I'm not sure. I'd post some more photos in a few weeks. I've had a bird (not a Cochin-- a Wyandotte) look 100% like a cockerel at 3-4 weeks old (bright red comb, annoying temperament, very bold), but turned out to be a pullet. So, there's still hope that "it" is a pullet.
