    The first three pictures are the same chicken
    I purchased 5 straight run standard blue cochins. Two I am sure are females, two roos, and one ? This is Belle or Beau, I am a little confused to her/his idenity. She has a wattles and a comb but they are shades lighter then the other male cochins I have 3 pics of her from different angles and two follow-up pics of the other roos. Their combs are blood red. These chicks are 13 weeks old. I hate to take her away from the girl if she is a he, it behaves very mellow but is bigger.... The other roos were pulling all the girls feathers out so now live in a bachelor pad till I can find them a home. Any help you all can give me is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

    Oh I'm sorry, I thought they were all the same. Sorry, they look to be all roosters.
