    These are just guesses !

    Group 1
    #1 - cockerel
    #2 - cockerel
    #3 - pullet
    #4 - pullet

    Group 2
    #5 - cockerel
    #6 - pullet

    If I had to decide which to keep I would keep #'s 3 & 4 from group 1 & from group 2 I'd keep both, but if I had to pick one it would be #6.

    I have three week old Cochin babies as well. I think that the boys feather later than the girls. If you look you can see that the boys wing and tail feathers are slower to come out...especially the tail feathers. The boys will have a more stubby tail at that age...and of course there is the comb..BUT I have had Cochins with large red combs and they have ended up laying eggs!

    #1 boy
    #2 boy
    #3 girl
    #4 girl...sorry I don't know about seramas...

    No I think #3is a girl I have one exactly the same color and everything..she is a girl...one I am pretty sure off there...but why is #1 so feathered? Or is it just the angle? None of my babies looks that feathered but I believe #1 is a boy.

    Definitely keep # 3 & 4 Cochin ...great colors! And both girls.

    Massively feathered.. I mean.. they came in so fast.. and huge!!! #1... is sooooooooooooooooooooooo fluffy feathery.. way different then all the others..

    Thats why I was wondering about 1? thinking.. one big huge puff ball.. good or not.. LOL
