    Hello all, i was wondering if you could help me identify my Cochin chick, i think she is right around 10 weeks now but im not 100% sure. the guy who does the breeding wasnt there so i got them from his daughter and she didnt know to much about them any help on age, sex and color would be great. looks like a golden laced cochin to me but im still a complete newbie and this is my first cochin. she is so sweet tho and will always let me hold her. much thanks

    Am I the only one seeing saddle feathers? If it wasnt for those, I'd be saying pullet.

    Not sure if it's just the feather coloring that is throwing me off but even doing a double take I see saddle feathers. I hope I am wrong though.

    I'd have to say male only because of the saddle feathers. [​IMG]
