    You will be able to tell the gender of the cochins at 6-10 weeks... it takes the silkies a lot longer

    5.Black Cochin

    At about 5-6 weeks you can sex the Cochins and the Favorelle. At about 5 month you should be able to sex the Silkies.

    Silkies and cochins, not sure what variety of Cochin they are, you will have to wait till they are fully feathered out.

    Bird three has five toes. Ergo, either a mutant or not a cochin. x2, Gray farms. Probably a Faverolle.

    2 and 4--black skin five toes. Silkies. Don't see much in the way of crests, though.

    1 actually looks a bit like a d'uccle to me, but I've never raised them, so don't quote me on that.

    5 looks like a cochin.
