    I got 17 chicks ranging in 2-4 each of diff bantams. They are 9 weeks old. Surprisingly a lot have red combs already. I have 3 Cochins the same that 2 have red combs and one doesn't so I'm pretty sure the 2 are roosters right? I think both my de rights are roosters too. How long should I wait? One of the Cochins is already running up to people [​IMG] we have to get rid of the roosters!
    I'll post pics

    Cochin on left and the other two on the right are the same and she doesn't have a comb really so I'm thinking she's the only pullet

    Individual closer pictures would help immensely but there's definitely a pile of cockerels. Atleast 5

    It looks to me like you have at least 5 cockerels. If you want to more specific identifications, I would suggest posting individual profile shots of each bird.

    I also easily count 5 cockerels. At only 9 weeks, any bird with a red comb is a cockerel, no debate.

    Okay when I get home I'll post some other pics. So far there are 4 for sure the 2 sebrights and the 2 of the 3 Cochins of the same kind. I have another kind of cochin and they all have the same comb- kinda orange not quite red
    This is one on the left and the right is for sure a rooster. What are thoughts on the one on the left?[​IMG]
