    Hellooo Cochin Experts!

    I am new to chickens in general but believe I have successfully sex-guessed all my other new babes, except my baby silkies obviously - haha and I am still on the fence about my four cochins.

    They are about 2 months old, or 9 weeks I 'spose.

    I'm hoping this will end the great cochin debate around here. [​IMG]

    Two blues are identical: same size, same size comb, smaller in stature than the other two cochins, of which one is blue, one is black but they look the exact same. Larger bodies and bare heads.

    Any guesses?
    (Crossing my fingers I can get these to post, new here - wish me luck)

    If they are all pictures of different birds I'd say two pullets, two cockrells and one sorta iffy

    Sorry, the one in the picture with the black one, is the same as one of the bottom two pictures, I couldn't tell you which one though - I can hardly tell them apart. haha

    So you would say the top one and the black one are the pullets? Bottom two the cockerels?

    thx.

    Thank you! Is it normal for the pullets to be larger than the roos? They are all from the same batch?
