    I have 5 bantam cochins that are about 19 weeks old. I was pretty sure when they were younger I had at least one pullet and now I don't even know. They look so different from what they use to.

    5. This is Big Fluffy and I am pretty sure he is a cockerel.

    Aw, they are so cute! I would have guesses. But I'm no expert.

    I would say # 4 & 5 are roosters

    I see saddles coming in on #3 and possibly #4, I see heckles coming in on #1 #2 #3 #4 and possibly #5. Are you sure they are almost 5 1/2 months old?

    Two roosters - #4 and #5. The other three are pullets.

    Positive. I broke out the papers and calendar to be sure.
