    I was wondering if you can tell if my Cochins are male or female? I'm really hoping female!

    No one is looking rooish yet but they are to you sex for sure. I would post again when they are around 6 weeks.

    Oh, okay thanks. So I'm guessing you can't tell by the gender on how they act?

    No not really at this age. Both pullets and cockerels can act aggressive.
