    I recently got 3 of these, and he told me they were a month old, which is wrong.. for I have two 4 week olds and they are not as feathered or as big as these.. actually I have 6 week olds that are not as big as these so my guess is they are atleast 10 weeks old or older..

    Well this is of the same chick, the other one doesn't have any color to it's comb so I assume it's a pullet but this one does have coloring to the comb but it's not very pronounced.
    I know this may be a silly question but do all cochin bantams comb come in the same? I have one 6 week old red frizzle rooster and his comb is undeniable. All the other's are in question.

    Just for fun, while I was taking pictures it jumped up on my hand then walked up my arm to my shoulder and sat there like a parrot.. So I think I will name this one Polly.

    Sorry to redo this, I just wasn't happy with the pictures before. Polly is now the one on the left, and you can see why I am questioning her being a pullet, sitting next to the pullet (pippin) on the right.

    Also the white one I am praying for a girl.

    Do you think both blacks and the larger white is female?

    Its almost looks like one black is a roo and one is a pullet. My LF cochin pullets had almost no comb until they were about 4 months old.

    My Bantams on the other hand had very obvious combs at about 2 months. The roo was unmistakable at a young age.

    My bantam cochin baby boys are crowing and they are about two months old. Between the red combs and the crowing contest, the little cockerels are very obviously boys now.
