    As a follow up to their 4 week old pictures , here they are @ 6 weeks. I am thinking 2 cockerels (D & E?), but they are tough to figure since I have never had Cochins before and have no idea how fast their wattles turn red. They all seem to be turning red faster than our RIR or BR did, but size-wise they are of course staying a lot smaller due to being bantams. Throw in the fact that 4 of the 6 are frizzles with feathers that all seem pointed and they completely throw me for a loop.

    Thanks in advance!

    Quote:What about B stands out? Is it the red wattle? I'm still not very good at picking out the markers, better yet on a frizzle. Thanks!
