    So I have four bantam Cochin chicks. They are about 7 weeks old.
    About 2 weeks ago my known little boy turned bright red but the other three have kept yellow crowns with no growth. Suddenly today my favorite two (and the third) are freaking me out. Are these roosters? Do red wattles mean they are for sure not hens? Sunshine is the least red on the wattles. Tilly is the most.
    #1- Tilly- gold laced
    #2- Shiny- yellow/gray/tan
    #3- Sunshine - red/tan-

    They look like all pullets. Cochins get a pink comb by 5 weeks if they are roosters.
