    Okay these guys range from 6 weeks old to 3 weeks old. I was told they are Columbian but I was also told one wasnt. Are they pullets or cockerals? I want to know the breed and gender.
    Oldest maybe a pullet. This is the one that i was told might not be a columbian

    I think it is too early to tell. Wait another few weeks.

    I would say that I don't see anything in those pix that screams "rooster," but they are still very young. I have some 4 and 6 week olds right now too. I have already identified some roos in my flock.

    I use to have a ton of cochin chicks. I had some pullets who I could have swore were roosters who actually turned out to be pullets. Don't get rid of extra roos too soon on cochins.

    Looks like the first four older ones are girls and the last two are cockerels.

    Quote:Look pretty columbian cochin to me. Whichever one isn't a pure columbian was probably outcrossed to another variety, but who knows what color genes they could be hiding. Did you get them from a breeder or just as bantam chicks?
