At least one is a rooster--but which one?

    I have three 8-week olds. I've heard crowing from the coop in the morning so I know that at least one is a rooster. But which one? If anyone can help I'd be very grateful. Also, I think that they are cochins, and they all have feathered legs--but can you confirm?[​IMG]

    First one and last one are boys. The middle one might be a girl, the face isn't as red, no real wattle development and for a straight comb it is still quite small.

    Okay, I'm crossing my fingers that the middle one (hera) is a girl. So sad about the golden laced one (aphrodite) since we aren't zoned for roosters. And do you think that they are all cochins?

    1 and 3 are cockerels and 2 is a pullet! :)

    Agree the middle bird is your only hope of a pullet. Se may be a cochin, we'll need a full body shot to say for sure. Profile pic, including legs is best. From what I can see, I'm thinking she's not, or at least not pure. She just doesn't have the look....but I could be wrong. The first bird isn't a cochin, as they have straight combs. I can't see the last bird's comb well enough, but the color is no standard cochin color, so it's likely mixed also.
