I believe my two Cochins are banties. However, I really don't know what the specific variety of Cochin they are and I am thinking the first photos of Blanche might be a roo. Gonna be Blane instead!!! Anyone know the variety?


Blanche (possibly Blane) - this one seems a bit more aggressive and has a tendency to get pecky with my POSSIBLY male Silkie around the same age. Blanche/Blane is a bit fluffier and/or larger in size than my other Cochin (pictured below). Also seems this one's comb is coming in larger and two red lines under the beak for I think the wattle (first time chicken parent here). Rose (below) is a tad smaller and smaller comb, more docile with the other chicks.

Blanche/Blane is a cockerel, but Rose is a pullet. I'm not sure of the variety--it almost looks like Columbian, but not quite.
