    Does anyone have any good ideas how to tell if a chick is a male or female??
    I just got 2 cochin chicks, not sure exactly how old they are- they are still peeping & look like they just transitioned from baby fluff to mostly feathers. I got them to help ease my "mama" cochin who sat a clutch, but didn't hatch any. Thankfully she has accepted them as her own & is quite happy. I am hoping to have to females, but I am not sure.... any thought or suggestions on how to check??

    Thanks!

    I agree, do you have any pics? It may be a bit early to tell. [​IMG] [​IMG]
