    Trying to sex these bantam cochins! All got their feathers really quickly. I'm really hoping for all pullets! They are all 4 1/2 weeks old . 20180330_120007.jpg 20180330_120416.jpg 20180330_120002.jpg

    They look like pullets at the moment but I’d post new pics at 8 weeks just to be sure.

    I'm not an expert but the 1st and 3rd chicks have more wattle development than the other chick, with the 1st chick specifically having really red wattles, which is a sign of having a young cockerel. However, this does not mean it's 100% a roo, some hens mature faster than others. I would just specifically watch and wait on the first and last chicks, and post pics in a couple weeks when they mature further. BTW I love the Frizzle Cochin:wee! Good Luck!

    So far, so good. This one has me wondering a little:

    They're still young to be sure. Post again in a few weeks.
