    My first 3 chicks to ever come out of my new 'bator. I have a White Bantam Cochin roo over a Bantam Blue Cochin hen and then a Bantam Black Frizzle SilkiexCochin mix hen.
    So I am pretty sure that the 2 Cochin chicks are roos. Any luck that the Frizzle is a pullet?

    I can't see very well, but it looks like a Frizzle pullet and the other 2 are cockerels.

    I think pullet. By 3 weeks, my cochin males had pinkish red combs and wattles already, like your two cochin babies. The females looked like your frizzle.

    I would agree with KellyHM the frizzle looks like a pullet and the other 2 roo's however I think I read somewhere that Cochins should only be bread with the silkies not frizzles with Cochins because the feathering is very off. Maybe you could update me on the feathering when the chick gets old

    Quote:Hmmmm.....I would love to know more about that!! Never heard of it. This particular chicks feathering is very curly. These "guys" were my test eggs for my 'bator, honestly just happy I had a 100% hatch rate with the new bator. [​IMG]

    The only breeding I know you shouldn't do (although you can), is frizzle to frizzle...
