    Does anyone know about this hybrid? my mom brought 6 of them home as day old chicks around august. I cant really find much about them. We aren't planning to eat them. I have a blue cochin rooster and since these chicks weren't sexed i was looking out for signs that said rooster but saw none. Now, however, two have larger combs and wattles than the other 4. their feathers look the same and they are the same size and everything is pretty much the same except for that. I will have pictures soon, have to transfer them.

    It is a good bet that the two with the most facial development in the last picture are cockerels.
    Look for pointed and shiny hackle saddle feathers on cockerels.
