    Hello, I am new to this chicken thing, and have 4 Cochins that were bought from Rural King straight run. I have had them about 4 weeks, but think that they are almost 7 weeks old. I need to cut the flock down to four (neighbors won't like 11 in the backyard for long) and get rid of the Roos, but am not 100% certain that I have gender right. Please help...

    Number 3: (the one I am POSITIVE is a Roo)

    Number 4: (Please tell me this one is a hen...we love her)

    I appreciate the help. I am assuming that I have 3 hens and a Roo, but I cannot believe that I got that lucky buying chicks straight run at Rural King.

    First time poster...Does anyone actually see this? How long does it usually take to get a response? Or is my question so obvious that everyone has dubbed me to stupid for reply (in which case I am thrilled, because I somehow got 3 hens).

    It's hard to tell from the pics, but you appear to be right. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sometimes it takes a while before you get a response. You are correct with your guesses.

    The only one that is suspiciously rooish is number 3. I am super duper jealous of you. My batch of cochins just had 4 out of 6 as roos [​IMG]
    We just re-homed the last two of the roos today. *sniffle* I'll miss tickling my little Soot.

    Where are you? If I actually got lucky and got 3 out of 4 pullets I am going to have to re-home two girls. Very friendly pretty girls.
