    HI guys/ladies...
    I have a question on 2 of my fave chicks in the coop. I have 18 chickes, 5 are full grown and definitely hens, they have been laying for a cpl months. But 2 of my faves ive fallen in love with i want to get the concensus if they are girls.
    First is a white frizzle (not sure if silkie or cochin) The second i think she is a white cochin.

    Agree the smooth bird is a cockerel, the frizzle is a pullet. I'm not hugely familiar with frizzles, but that looks like a frazzle to me, meaning she has a double dose of the frizzle gene. It causes very brittle feathers, you may want to do some research and see if that's the case and if there's anything you need to do different for her. I'd love to hear other's opinion if I'm correct, always learning [​IMG]
