    I know the brown one is, she laid yesterday. I believe the feathers of the white one suggest female? Help, lol. "She" hasn't laid yet..

    It does appear to be a hen, could you get a better picture to be sure?

    Update! Maybe y'all can help again. This white one still hasn't laid yet, fine, but is now crowing like a rooster. I understand this may be common in an all hen coop. Can you take a look again and let me know male or female..? Thanks guys!

    If it's crowing at 6 months it's a cockerel. Cochins take a long time to mature.

    So it's common for a cochin to appear female even if male? Also my co worker said that are closer to 9 months, not sure if that makes a difference.
