    These are my first cochins. They're about 2 weeks old. Any guesses on the sex?

    Since the first one looks Barred, you should be able to tell in another week or 2. They can be sexed like Barred Rocks, Darker colors are girls. If I had to guess from that pic I say girl, but it is a bit early.
    Second one, hard to say, I would almost bet though that the chick is from my Partridge hen.
    Third, I love the color, wonder what it is going to look like when older. Could be Splash Rooster on Black or Blue hen. I would guess Hen, but that is simply a guess at this point.

    Thanks Karen, your guesses are the same as mine. I'm thinking the barred one and the blue one are pullets. Having never delt with cochins before I have no idea what to look for.

    The third one looks like my blue orp chicks.
