    hi all
    These are my 2 bantam cochin chicks that are around 8 weeks old. Just wanting some more opinions on what the sexes might be. I'm thinking (hoping) they are both girls, but I am a beginner at this. Please let me know what you think [​IMG] fritz is and has been very tiny since I got her, but frizzle has grown alot in the last 2 weeks, but she might be older the fritz.

    Based on the feathering and the comb development, I would guess the black one is a roo and the other is a hen.

    At 8 weeks, my boys were much more obvious than that. I'd say 2 girls. But I'm relatively new at this.
