    Hoping for some gender insights on my 11 week old Cochin x chicks. I am hoping pullets, 2 & 3 have slightly larger combs than 1 & 4 but they haven't grown or changed in 5 weeks now. Thanks

    Going by coloration and early comb development, I am GUESSING that 2 and 3 are cockerels. Wait a bit before getting rid of them - this gender ID is somewhat tentative.

    #2 and #3 look like cockerels to me.
