    Hi everyone I have two Cochin chicks and need help deciding their gender. One is buff and one has both buff and black colouring. I tried to attach pictures so hopefully they work.

    How old are they? Buff and black is a mix due to leg color is wrong for a pure Cochin.

    They are barely over 2 months. I bought them as day olds and was told they were cochin but I guess you never know.

    If they are 8 weeks I'd say they are both cockerels.

    I'd wait another week or so to be sure. But it's not looking good if you were wanting pullets.
