    So we picked up these two from the straight run bantam box at TSC about 5 weeks ago...One is definite boy...and the other might be. What do you think?? And can you tell me what breed they might be?? Cochin maybe?

    Here's the two of them together....

    Would a different angle or view of the chicks help with the guessing? The one on the right (I think a rooster) has feathered out much more slowly and started showing "red" in his comb and waddles last week. The one on the left is more maturely feathered and just started showing a little red on the comb and waddles yesterday ( which may be difficult to see in these pics.) Thanks!

    Yes, I'd say you've got yourself 2 boys. They look like cochins too, look at those foot feathers!!!

    I guess I should have known as a newbie that the last two bantams in the box would be boys! [​IMG] I love the feathers on their feet and they way they tuck their head down and run with those feathers on their legs and feet. I guess their names are Reggie and Scooter instead of Reggie and Gypsy...
