    Kernel the white one is I believe a pure cochin bantam. He is getting a bigger comb and it is pink at this point, more so than the photo shows. He also is almost fully feathered now. Is he a he? [​IMG]
    His clutch mate is part cochin bantam I think. Any guesses as to what else? She has only her wing feathers, some on her chest and tail and a very different looking comb compared to Kernel, that has stayed small and not changed color at all yet. [​IMG]

    I also have three millie cochins that are three weeks old and one has a larger comb than others. Is it too soon to tell?

    Thanks for all the help!

    I always have a hard time telling with the cochins untill they are at least 8 weeks old. I had a roo that diddnt get his bigger comb untill he was four months old or so. I thought he was a hen.

    I really dont know.
