    I'm hoping that a couple of these are females but really I'm not sure about the first two. What do you think?

    Not even sure if this is a cochin but whatever it is appears to be a rooster for sure! It was sold to us as a cochin but looks nothing like the others.

    How old are they? The third one looks like it might be a D'Uccle cross???

    I know it's probably sad that I can't tell at 16 weeks if we have a hen or rooster but that's the newbie part [​IMG] We have barred rocks and those are easy and silkies which I'm not even going to guess on. The cochin's combs are so much more red than the rock hen so it started to look a little confusing. I appreciate the help so much!

    First 2 are girls, 3rd a boy. And I agree, he looks like a D'Uccle cross.
