    Hi everyone. Im Jenny. I just picked up my 4 cochin babies today. They are about 12 weeks i think. Happy little campers. Breeder said they have been innoculated already. I am struggling to tell the girls from boys BUT think i might have it down. Comb red vs light pink on girls? So id have 1 boy, 3 girls. Thinking of names! [​IMG] Right now its winter so they will be in house in their cage and we will build a coop for them. Iv had Pekins and Rhode Islands too. Loved them all. Lifes too short to not havr chickens [​IMG]

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Congrats on the new babies! It might be a bit early to tell the sexes yet...usually after about 2 months, it is getting fairly obvious. Some birds do mature up faster than others even if they are all pullets.

    Love those Cochins! So friendly and pretty too.

    Make yourself at home here and if you have any questions about them, feel free to ask.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock! :)
