    Our cochin "Blue" is between 6 - 8 weeks old. Any thoughts on gender yet? We are really wanting a pullet.

    From what I can tell from this photo I'd say you have a pullet. However, 8 weeks is a bit young. Good luck! She's a lovely bird!

    Thanks! I sure hope so. We will be keeping it either way, but a pullet would be nice for a change! We've had a roo year so far.

    Leaning towards pullet but not 100% sure. I would love if you could post again in another week to confirm.
