I submitted pictures of my two 8.5 week old bantam cochins yesterday. I got mixed responses for the genders. What do you think? Pictures are on my last post, What Gender?? (Pictures) by Sandy Sea . Thanks

I don't see a picture. My 4 month old bantam cochin (girl) does not show much of a change in comb, no wattles at all. Yet the roo that was the same age was showing a red wattle/comb and trying to crow. The young fella I have now, approx 2 months old is red comb/wattle and DOOOOO(ing) in the morning over our cheerios! lol. He is still in the house- I just obtained him and a sibling- lol. Good luck and enjoy the little love bugs!

I have cochin/frizzles that are the exact age. My pullet still has no red, no wattles, and nary a comb. I say 2 definite roos. My dominant roo it the only one that is super red, the others are just not as bright red, although still red. Pretty birds

edited to say that I would still hold on to them for a few more weeks just in case
