    Hi All!

    Can you help me figure out the sex of my Cochins? I have four and they are 8 weeks old. The Blue Cochin's I am pretty sure I have a pair- pretty obvious one is a cockeral but please correct me if I am wrong. But the Splash Cochins I am having trouble with [​IMG] They are so much smaller then the blues so it's hard to compare?

    Let me know if you need better pics. I took these tonight after they went to bed so I could actually get them while they were still [​IMG]

    I want to say both splash are pullets, BUT....
    Need a full side shot and one of the tail and saddle feathers please.

    My cochin's had big combs by that age


    Best Wishes,
    Laura

    Thanks for the quick reply! I'll look to see if I took any shots of tail/saddle feathers. They are still awfully fluffy in the back end, very slow to feather.

    Hi. I just ordered 10 of these myself this Spring. My guess is pullet, pullet, pullet and then roo (black or dark blue) on the far right of the picture.

    The one on the far right in the first picture looks to be the only cockerel to me.
    All the others look like my pullet at that age.
