    I have ONE cochin and nothing to compare it to. She's supposed to be a she, but I dont know what their combs and wattles look like at this stage of the game and hers are quite developed- but I might be wrong since I have nothing to compare to...

    Does anyone have pictuers of roo's and Pullets?

    I really want to know as well. Mine were born on March 12, 09 so they are a few weeks old.

    I think one is a boy though. the comb and watles look more red compared to the other three.

    There are pics on my website (under my avatar) if you want to look.

    Has anyone noticed if there is a difference between the way males and females feather in?

    Found 2 more pics. Notice on Louie, I thought she was a Roo but she's now trying to hatch 7 eggs [​IMG] , the comb and waddle are redder.
