    This is Fanny, our White Cochin who is almost 5 weeks old. She is much smaller than the rest of the 5 week old chicks. I had read somewhere that roos can be considerably smaller than hens when they are growing. Could she be a roo?

    These are pics of her compared to our NHR.

    Any characteristics I should be looking for in a Cochin roo? I want a hen!!

    Thanks-

    By 5 weeks, my cochin roos had some serious color starting in their combs, I vote pullet.

    My cochin roos also have definite wattles starting around 5-6 weeks. Looks like a pullet.
