    None of these crow, but a friend thinks they are roos. I disagree but am not sure. So hens or roos? Am I correct with breeds also?

    They are 3.5 months old. The buttercup OEG bantam in the background of pic 1 has a bigger comb and crows. It is the same age.

    Cochin's are slow to develop, but I think it may be a roo, with the pointed hackle feathers. So pretty!

    Your Brahma is a cockerel. The cochin and d'Anvers bantam are pullets.

    The brahma is a cockerel. The cochin... are you sure of the age? that much comb, but that's a female pattern and feathering...

    I'm sure - at most 4 months. I keep a spreadsheet, but it may have been at the farm store a few days before purchase.

    well, the cochin is female, it can't be male, but she's really mature for her age.

    Actually- just the Brahma is a cockerel. The cochin has female specific feathering. :)
