    Hey! :D

    I've recently purchased three frizzle chicks, they're about 3.5 weeks old right now! As they're getting older, they've all started displaying fairly cockerel-like behaviour, e.g. they end fighting with each other more so now, they really like to fly at every opportunity, and just general cheekiness!

    I've attached some images and was hoping that you guys could help me figure out if they are likely to be cockerels! :jumpy:jumpy

    I will assume they are Cochins? Males will develop a pink comb by 5 weeks if they are. Both sexes will chest bump and work out the pecking order.

    Snowys beak does look a lot more pink than the others. I would create another thread in two weeks or so and make sure to tag me because they are absolutely adorable and i would love to see them as they get older!
