    Not really got a clue about either of these - we bought hatching eggs without really knowing what we were going to get, just for the surprise! There's obviously some frizzle there, but can anyone tell us what breed they are and what gender? They are about 11 weeks old and have huge hairy feet! They're going to be big birds!

    The first one may have the frizzle gene, but it's not a frizzle. The second one is a black frizzle Cochin. I have a frizzle cochin that I absolutely love.

    Yours look older then 11 weeks. Mine is only 10 weeks old and much smaller then yours. I have a standard size cochin as well.

    Any thoughts on whether they're boy or girl? we wondered if we had one of each, but really aren't sure.
