    Umm...he or she does have a good amount of comb development, but I don't see wattles and my cochins always developed wattles early when they were boys, so I would just guess girl...but it's just a guess! Also if it helps, my cochins were always early crowers so if it doesn't crow by 8-10 weeks you may be safe!

    Thank you. A girl guess is a good guess for me right now. The wattles really aren't that big yet..couldn't get that close up of them. The feet aren't real thick either.. just keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you for replying!

    Ugh! This is NOT what I wanted to read!!! I have one cochin banty and 'she' is developing wattles early-ish? She is probably about 5 weeks? I got her from a friend, so I dont know the exact age. I KNOW I have a barred rock roo so that would give me 2 definite roosters out of 7. That is if my 3 "rainbow layers" all end up girls. Lets hope the early wattles thing isn't a sure thing!​
