    I have 9 Cochin chicks 6 black and 3 gray. The one on the right is the only one with a red comb that it's bigger than the others. Is it a rooster or is it just developing earlier?

    Awesome! I'm very excited about that. I just hope the two older ones don't bully him. Any advice for getting them to get along? The older ones are 2 months older.

    Older chicks almost always pick on younger chicks. I don't mix chicks that are more than 10 days apart. Chicks need to be about the same size to be kept together harmoniously.
