    Hi! We have 3 buff Cochins and 1 blue Australorp, they are about 6-7 weeks old.
    We think that the Australorp is a roo, but are not sure about the Cochins...
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    really hoping that this one is a girl, as she is so sweet!

    I think #1 is a roo but I'd say numbers 2,3,and 4 are looking like pullets.[​IMG]

    Number #1 looks like a rooster, but the others look like pullets. To be sure of gender, though, post some more photoes when they are older.
