My Cochin is changing. I had posted a while back asking if we were a hen or roo. Everyone said hen, but now I hope you will look again because today at 12.6 weeks old I have noticed that she is looking different than my other Cochin hen. She has longer tail feathers and she is starting to get some spotty color in the tail. She also has a redder face and longer wattles. I have attached pics for you to see. Do you still say hen? I hope so.

Pullet. Birds can grow at different rates. I have 2 leghorns that are the exact same age and one has a comb and wattles that are twice the size of the other and much redder but I know they are both hens. And hens grow tails faster than roos.
