    the reason is I am now second guessing is the combs aren't as red as the other roo(one is crowing already) but their wattles are red [​IMG] new to cochins, please help

    thanks,

    Everytime I've ever gotten a frizzle it was a boy and they turned into little bags of hormones. [​IMG]

    One was even a double frizzle, very ugly.
     
  3. Hi Krista!
    The 2nd one is almost certainly a girl. Yaay!
    The first one is tougher --- those wattles can be deceiving.
    It still has a nice tidy, pale comb, tho, so I'd *tentatively* say girl.
    By 7 wks here I can tell definitely. Pics are tougher, because sometimes it's stance and attitude as much as combs/wattles.

    Well *he* has a home if he's a roo, how long will it take to know for sure?
     
  5. It shouldn't be long [​IMG]
    Are any of the little guys trying to crow yet?

    Hop! Hop!
