    3 week old Lavender Pekin (Cochin Bantam)

    no visible waddles yet, but the comb is almost double the size of my other standard sized chicks and is feathering much slower. My other chicks of the same age are a most fully feathered, actually.

    This is Bleu and she/he is my only cochin. I do have another bamtam, but that one is a silver sebring and has a rose comb. Does anyone have any ideas? I know it is a little early to determine, but I thought I'd give it a shot! I'm a little obsessed with finding out since this little one is one of the sweetest chicks we have.

    This is a picture of Nugget, my golden sex link to show what I am comparing to. She is also 3 weeks old. All of the others look simmilar to this one in feathering and comb size.

    Thank you, this helps! I'm thinking rooster as well judging from the this chart. :)
