White cochin hens do have bright red combs and wattles but if they grow any taller and longer it will be a roo. Are the hackle feathers rounded or more pointed? Rounded = pullet Pointed=roo. :thumbsup

So, now I am wondering if my buff cochin is a boy or a girl...I had assumed he was a boy...but he looks a lot like the cochin above...could he actually be a girl??

So here's a picture of my other Buff Cochin...s/he's a little darker in color and the comb & waddles are still not as red as Reggie's. This one is the friendliest, most curious, follows me around, and cuddled with the OEGBs when they were little. He's a cockeral too, isn't he??? They are the only two cochins I have ever seen, so I don't have much to compare them too...both are 11 weeks old...
