    I got these blue cochins and was told that they are pullets. I am not that sure however. The combs are way more developed then the white one that is supposed to be the same age but my BO roo dominates and tries to mate them all.

    I know they are not the best pics and if no one can tell I can try to get more tomorrow.

    Can you post better pics??? It would help. The way the boy is holding the one.....I don't think that's a pullet, but I can't be sure.

    the one the boy is holding looks like a rooster to me! Pretty sure of it. It has a large comb and wattles. Also, blue cochin males tend to have a darker color on the top like the one in the pictures. pullets are usually primarily blue.

    I think that they are both roosters.

    Im pretty sure that they are roosters now. I got ripped off. Guess I should have paid better attention. Is this white one at least a girl?
    What color babies would I get if I breed the white pullet to the blue rooster?

    I would say white one is a hen and the blue ones are roosters! Sorry!

    Wow- that is one big blue roo! Nice! Cochin roos are the best. I have LOTS of them. The white hen is quite pretty too.
    I think your BO roo is a little confused [​IMG]
