    My red Cochin is 5 weeks old now, just like my other 3 bantams are. My OEG bantam ROO has a very pronounced red comb and I know her is a roo, but this little girl (I pray is girl) is fooling me now. Everyone on here has so far thought Pullet, but here are recent pics, so lets see if she is still a SHE [​IMG]
    I know that pullet Cochin get comb and wattles, just not as big as roos, and she has been a bit slow to feather, but like i said mt other ROO has a really distinct comb...

    OOOh I'm not sure. Most of the photos I think she looks like an adorable bald eagle HEN because of the white head. The last photo tho, I'm thinking roo - just because of the expression - nothing scientific.

    The last photo she was getting Hot, so started to pant, and I took the shot..lol
    And her comb is a little pink, but my Roo the same age is SO RED and Bigger...so I am confused, but she is sooo sweet and a cuddle bug !

    Edit: and depending on the light, depends if it looks more pink or more yellow....I Sure HOPE it is a PULLET !!!!! [​IMG]

    My BR's were the same way. There both roo's, but one had a larger comb than the other and pinker.
