    I have 2 standard size black cochins. They will be 6 weeks old tomorrow...
    I think I have a pair, but just want to make sure...

    Here they are...

    Pullet?

    Together...Roo in question on left, pullet in question on the right...and sleeping little chicks in between them!

    I think I'm right on who's who, but just want to make sure...

    Sorry I can't be sure if you are right or not at this stage. Larger comb size does not always mean it's going to be a roo. Will pray for a pair. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure it's a pair, I just wanted to check. They are total opposites, one with huge/red combs and wattles developing, the other with black combs and no wattles....I need to make sure that I have them right though...I dont want to sell the wrong one (we dont have room for any more roos!)
