    We bought these two as Cochin bantams, but they look a little different from the other cochins we have. They are 6 or 7 weeks old. Just wanted your opinions. I think I have one pullet and one roo. Am I right? Thanks!
    I think this one might be a pullet?

    Well, I'd have to agree with you on their genders... Aren't the cochins fluffier than your 2 are? I'm no breed expert though, so I can't really say. They are very neat birds though!!

    They are not Pure Cochin and I suspect they are standard and not Bantam, I am judging by the one on the Bucket. That one also looks like a cockerel.

    Here are my bantam cochins at the same age as yours - six weeks. They were at the "ugly" stage. The black ones look like vultures.
    Yours are much bigger and have sparse leg and foot feathering.
