    I received 3 baby Bantam Cochins from my neighbor...they are 23 days old today. I was wondering if anyone could tell just by looking (ha ha) if they are roo's or pullets?

    Here's Silver #1:

    It's still early, but an educated guess would be: Freddie is the only pullet.

    Hard to tell from pics but I would say that silvers are cockerels and brown is a pullet, but don't worry I keep all my roos together and they do fine [​IMG]

    It's really to early to tell, give them another month....they combs on the males will really redden up.

    My GUESS would be the top two are males the last one is a pullet:)

    That's what I was thinking. Freddie's comb is much smaller - 'she' is much smaller period. Plus, the 2 Silver's are more daring and aggressive...not horrible, just something you notice.

    Guess my hubby better get busy - I'm going to need THREE coops & play yards now...I want to know when my Polish pullet has eggs, they are from the Polish roo - same with my Silkie's. LOL! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the input!!
