    Ok, here are some of my 7 week old bantam Cochin chicks. There are some I'm pretty sure about being pullets or roos and a couple that I think are one today and the opposite tomorrow. [​IMG] So what do you think?

    I'll start with my Birchens.
    These are pullets I'm nearly positive...
    [​IMG]
    And I'm pretty positive on these being roos since they're getting the back feathering like roosters...
    [​IMG]
    But not sure about this one...

    And I think the splash is a roo and the other I'm not sure. Please say pullets.

    If those two are indeed roos then I only got 2 pullets out of 10!

    White and reds coming....

    Here's the two whites.
    Do you think I have a pair?

    They're a week younger than the Blues and Birchens.

    Here's the red chicks. Are they cochins?

    Is it a pair?

    Quote:Ok the birchens...the one on the right is a roo other 2 are hens IMO the one in question i think looks rooish to me
    the lighter splash looks like a hen but the darker one is a roo

    The first 3 pics of the 3 blues look like pullets to me and the ones you thought were roos look like roos definately

    Your right on the reds and whites a pair of each [​IMG] I just loveeee cochins! they are sooo much fun and soooo squeezably cute

    Thanks! Oh me too! I'm so in love with cochins! I now have 8 Gold Laced chicks too but they're day olds so there's no sexing them yet. I absolutely love the breed though! [​IMG]

    I haven't seen many bantam gold laced pictures so I'm anxious to see these guys mature. I've had Silver Penciled, Partridge, Blues, Blacks, Whites, Buffs before. I got 2 buffs this time but they were both roos. [​IMG]
