    These chicks are about a week old, I know they are too young to sex but if anyone has any ideas on what their genders may be that would be great. Also, what color do you think my Cochins are. I'm thinking black but I'm not sure. Thank You

    The Cochin appears to be Golden Laced. They're too young to even guess gender.

    I agree, Golden-Laced Cochins. [​IMG] Updated pictures in a few weeks would help immensely as far as determining gender goes. [​IMG]

    agree too young for gender - try posting new photos at about 8 weeks of age.

    This is what they look like now. I'm thinking they are all hens at this point. The only thing is, the Cochins don't look like gold laced Cochin pictures I have looked up. It might be because they are hatchery birds but I'm not really sure.

    As you can see this one has more of a gold pinstripe pattern by her neck area.

    I'm seeing all pullets too.

    Those are GLC, but yes, they are poorly laced. That is, sadly, typical of hatchery GLs of most breeds. SL varieties are even worse - I have seen some almost pure black and some columbian looking birds sold as SL several times.
