    1 and 3 definitely cockerels, but you knew that, right?
    2 is tricky. At first I wanted to jump on pullet, but experience with Wyandottes says to wait. I thought 2 of my Wyandottes were cockerels until they got to be 4-months old and realized they were all girls. I am comparing this one to Wyandottes because it got the comb from that breed.
    The two buffs, I would wait, there are some red wattles coming in on both of them, and that would tell me cockerel. I think in 4 more weeks you can call them all.

    Quote:the 1st 3 all had the same SLW dad but only the one came out with his comb. the 2 blacks had the same mum aswell. spartacus had a dif mum.
    but yea i knew 1 is a roo & was hoping 3 wasn't but i kinda figure he is as those 2 are always fighting.
    the 2 cochins were shipped eggs & were the only ones that hatched so [​IMG] at least one is a pullet

    lol i just had 5 out of 7 cochin eggs hatch. the cochin is a developing breed here as we dont have any & thanks to J R McCormick they are actually a developing breed & i have 2 lines descending from his. with the hopes to breed back & get the cochin recognised here
