    [​IMG]I have a black Cochin chick and buff Cochin, both five weeks, and the black has just surpassed the buff and seems very large, could it be a roo? [​IMG][/IMG]

    Both look like pullets at this point.

    The black one could be a roo - as it comb is quite developed.[​IMG]
    The buff one looks like a pullet. My Silver Pencil Cochin Bantam pullet's comb was non-existent until just recently and she's 10wks old.

    I'm starting to think mine is not a Silver Pencil Cochin, but maybe a Laced Cochin.

    Six week photos...the buff is getting fluffier but the black is still much fluffier, tail feathers different, too.

    Wow...that black one has a lot of red comb and wattle. I'm no pro but the black one looks like a boy.

    What did your black cochin turn out to be? I have a 10 week old bought as a girl but so big and comb and waddle already I am worried.
