    We have some black cochin bantam chicks. How do you tell if they are roosters or pullets? Or can you not tell until they are older? Thanks!

    I'd say around a month or two to tell on most chicks. :)

    I would love to see pictures. I have two that are almost two weeks old. So tiny, and precious.

    By 5 weeks you should know for sure. Boys get red wattles and combs by then. Girls have no wattles and a small almost non existent flesh coloured comb. They are gorgeous bantams.
