    I have two lavender cochins, I think they are a pair..[​IMG]
    Cockerel on left, pullet on right?[​IMG]
    Here I went around them, cockerel on right, pullet on left? [​IMG]
    Back around again...pullet on left, cockerel on right? Or do I have two girls? I posted on the cochin thread, but they are not too busy on there today. Thanks! Around 3 months old in these pics.

    I know cochins are tricky but I really don't see anything cockerel-like about either of them. [​IMG]

    (given their age)

    Both look like pullets. I don't know much about Cochins, but they look to be more like 5 months instead of 7. But maybe Cochins mature differently than the breeds I'm familiar with.

    They don't really look to be 7 months, if they are they you definitely have two pullets.

    They look like 2 girls to me... my cochins grew in their combs fairly early. Made me wonder a long time, too, but they are girls.
